Package: apache2-mpm-prefork
Severity: minor

The current description of the apache2-mpm-prefork Debian package is
incomplete, and insufficient to allow a user to evaluate its utility
without consulting Apache's documentation themselves. Here is a good
paragraphs I found in Apache's documentation that might make sense in
the Debian package description:

"This Multi-Processing Module (MPM) implements a non-threaded,
pre-forking web server that handles requests in a manner similar to
Apache 1.3. It is appropriate for sites that need to avoid threading for
compatibility with non-thread-safe libraries. It is also the best MPM
for isolating each request, so that a problem with a single request will
not affect any other." [1]

I think that the description should also recommend the worker mpm for
higher performance, as Apache does in [2]their documentation.

The user should be able to look at the description and from that alone
determine whether or not they need prefork or worker for their site.
