Bug#217167: Incorrect use of debconf

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.28-4
Severity: normal

The postinst for apache calls db_input for a number of debconf variables
that are not mentioned in the config script at all. This breaks
debconf's pre-configuration with APT, causing it to prompt for these
questions halfway through the installation.

Ideally, _all_ questions should be asked in the 'config' script. See
debconf-devel(7) for more details.
