Package: apache2
Version: 2.2.21-2
Severity: wishlist

Would it be possible to support an option "RUN" or
"START_DAEMON" in /etc/default/apache2, similar to
other packages?

Apache2 is supposed to be started by other means on
my systems. Creating /etc/insserv/overrides/apache2
appears a little bit too complex just to make sure
that it is not started at boot time.

Setting the default to "true" would be fine with me.

Many thanx

We had a no start option in /etc/default/apache2 in the past and it 
caused quite a lot of pain.

update-rc.d nowadays has enable/disable commands for end-users, which 
do the right thing in order not to get lost on updates. Therefore we 
are not going to reinvent the wheel in the apache package.

If that is bothering you, please file a bug on insserv.
