Re: Apache newbie: All the php4* packages want apache 1.* ?

Okay.  Well then I hope Phil goes back to Apache 1.3.26 unless he really
wants to get his hands dirty ...  But don't worry Phil, it's a learning
experience and hence is "character building".

Oh that's right, I remember reading that somewhere.  Probably in the
php4 package changelog.

Great, but I suppose we'll have to wait a while for it to stabilise.

This leads me to ask something I've been wondering for a while: with
php4 and modperl support for apache2 on the (near) horizon, do you
(Thom, willy etc) have any idea/plans on how long apache 1.3 will remain
a going concern within Debian?  Is the objective to resolve all those
old apache bugs or just basically start afresh with apache2?  (No willy,
this is not a dig at the size of your bug queue!)  I'm really just
wondering where most of the effort is going to go now.
