Bug#613969: /etc/init.d/apache2 status fails to comply with LSB spec

Package: apache2.2-common
Version: 2.2.16-6
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

As shipped the init script for Apache2 fails to return LSB compliant error codes when the status is queried. This is important when using LSB scripts with clustering solutions such as Pacemaker[1] that require init scripts to return correct error codes. 

The following patch fixes the apache2 init script to return the correct codes when quering status according to the LSB spec[2]. Please consider including the patch in a future point release update.
