Bug Description

Binary package hint: apache2

In the package apache2 2.2.8-1 :
/usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian points to ../apache2.2-common/README.Debian which doesn't exist.
/usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian should be renamed to .gz and linked to ..../apache2.2-common/README.Debian.gz .

Additionally, shouldn't http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/apache2-mpm-prefork ,mpm, event depend on apache2 ?

Nope - they depend on apache2.2-common, which is all what they need to
work.

It's some documentation in there that's nice to have ( http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/all/apache2/filelist ), but i just noticed that every file there is duplicated in apache2.2-common ( http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/i386/apache2.2-common/filelist ). Which is a little strange but OK - that way you'll get the documentation even without apache2.

This is a bug in the debian/rules file that has been fixed in intrepid. I have attached the debdiff for the fix. There should be no regressions.

TEST CASE:

1. Setup a kvm seesion
2. Install apache2-mpm-prefork.
3. Check to see if the README.Debian.gz is broken.

If you have any questions let me know.

Thanks

In the current hardy-proposed package, the link is correct. Please make sure that this gets fixed in Intrepid soon.
