Bug#397886: apache2.2-common: non wanted behaviour during upgrade: charset MUST not be created without user consent

Package: apache2.2-common
Version: 2.2.3-3
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
In apache2.2-common somebody choose to set up default charset:

if [ ! -f /etc/apache2/conf.d/charset ]; then
    echo "AddDefaultCharset UTF-8" > /etc/apache2/conf.d/charset

This will modify apache configuration during an upgrade. Eventually will
cause all sites served locally to be IMPACTED by wrong charsets [mozilla
selects utf8 if apache told him that its the default - even if the page
designer used the content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-15" in headers].

And this is clearly NOT wanted.

Please wipe out the creation of this charset file. Pleaaaaase.

Best regards,
