apache2.2 uploaded to experimental

Hi all,

As of today, Apache 2.2 is available from experimental (packagename:
apache2-mpm-{worker,prefork} etc). New features include LFS support, and
improved caching. For more info, see:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/new_features_2_2.html and
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/upgrading.html . Note especially the
changes in authentication.

This version is not yet ready for unstable, and hence also not for etch,
because it requires more testing. All maintainers of apache modules are
encouraged to test their modules against apache2.2 from experimental, and
upload tested modules to experimental. Please note that it is not possible
to build a module for both apache 2.0 and apache2.2 from the same source package.
Authentication modules especially probably require changes. Success/failure
stories from Apache module maintainers are welcome on the debian-apache

Thanks to Canonical for sponsoring the sprint that got us 99% of the way
done, and (almost) everyone else for being patient over the long wait.
