thank you for the answer. I think the package I built is already
80% baked. I based my work on the scripts David Welton made when
he packaged Rivet 0.5 for Debian Apache 1.3, before he quit his

requirements of a Debian Apache Policy, how configuration files
are automatically linked from etc/apache2/mod-enabled to
mod-available and how to reload the configuration into the server.
I expected to find postinst or postrm scripts for this purpose in
other debian apache packages but I didn't find any. Perhaps I
didn't search hard enough, but I thought that it was a chance to
have general directions.
There is no Debian Apache policy. But in answer to your questions, I
have put some hints on the Debian wiki:
Feel free to correct errors and/or ask for clarifications.
thank you, the example in the page are what I was looking for.
In the meanwhile I had a major setback building the package. I thought
that having module binary, docs was just matter of setting a few
parameters correctly since at first the docs and configuration went
into the package quite easily. I did not expect to get stuck with a
problem concerning the binary of the module. I've read quite extensively
the New Maintainer manual and other resources, but I think it's time to
ask on the mentors list
I will come back to this list when I have a working package to offer for
