Package: apache2-common
Version: 2.2.3-3.2

The /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file is meant for user configuration of
Apach but the ServerTokens and ServerSignature directives are
specified in the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file AFTER including the
user specific configurations.

The result of this is that setting these two configurations is futile
when editing the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and hence renders the use of
this file pointless to anyone who wants to customise Apache while
leaving the core configuration file untouched.

The solution would be to move these two directives BEFORE including
the user configurations in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.

Version: 2.2.4-1

Since version 2.2.4-1, you can use files in /etc/apache2/conf.d to 
override settings from apache2.conf.

httpd.conf is only there for backwards compatibility with apxs (as is 
explained in the comment in the file).
