That's all fair enough.  File a bug against the woody version of Apache
and it will receive due attention.  Include a unified diff for the file
in question (/var/www/index.html) and it's even more likely to get a
look.  =)

They're not bad people though.  And free advertising is the best they
can ask for: after all, they're a free publication.  They were recently
brought in under the Red Hat umbrella but remain an independent and
volunteer-driven newsletter.  At least insofar as I know.  I've been
reading it for years, and until the Apache Documentation project got
underway and set about revamping the official docs, the ApacheWeek web
site was one of the best places to go for information on setting up HTTP
AUTH, rotating log files, virtual hosts, etc.  Also every issue usually
links to some interesting sites with information for new Apache admins,
developers etc.
