Mismatching module name in .conf for libapache2-mod-rpaf 0.6-2

Fix Released

Bug Description

The .conf preset for mod_rpaf includes the line:

<IfModule mod_rpaf.c>

However, the actual module name expected by Apache2 is mod_rpaf-2.0.c.

My guess is that the change in the module name is not intentional, since it breaks upgrades.

I look at rpaf.conf in Debian's libapache2-mod-rpaf (0.6-5).
It uses <IfModule rpaf_module> instead of <IfModule mod_rpaf.c>.

As suggested, changing the module name in rpaf.conf to mod_rpaf-2.0.c fixes the problem.

Using <IfModule rpaf_module> (as per debian) is also fine for Lucid fwiw.

Hey, I've just missed 20 minutes to understand why the hell mod_rpaf wasn't working here! Please release the fix!

Any update on when the fix will appear in the Precise repos? For the time being I've just disabled the module check entirely to future proof the conf file on my boxes.

This just bit me in the ass, too. HIGHLY annoying and should be ridiculously simple to fix in the package...

By the way - I can confirm that <IfModule rpaf_module> works. (And seems more portable / stable than referring directly to the module version - I'm going to assume that the Debian people are Doing It Right.)

Still no fix in the Precise repos, as it is LTS I think it must be fixed:
* Precise: http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/libapache2-mod-rpaf
   Uses: <IfModule mod_rpaf.c>
* Fix: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libapache2-mod-rpaf/0.6-2ubuntu1
   Introduces: <IfModule rpaf_module>

Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu Trusty is using <IfModule rpaf_module> also. Is there any reason why the fixed package is not released in Precise? It should be very easy, as a fix has already been made and a package built.
