It is the only way to fix correctly the 2 RC bugs we have now. They are
mutually exclusive. You fix one the other is broken and viceversa.

No later than the end of this week. The biggest and most complex part of
managing modules has been done and tested. I only miss to migrate the few
questions from apacheconfig inside debconf and those 2/3 corrections that
apacheconfig does blindly inside postinst.common.

No. We have other showstoppers such as 1.3.28 that we cannot upload yet
since the -ssl patches do not apply clean mainly because 1.3.28 has a
small API change in order to fix 2 security problems.

Well as i wrote before or one or the other... we need to get rid of
apacheconfig to fix both...
