Bug#674515: /bin/htpasswd exists in apache2-utils and mini-httpd

severity 674515 serious
reassign 674515 mini-httpd


I'm afraid, but on behalf of the Apache maintainers I have to say: This
is not our business. We are shipping this binary since a very long time
and we can't just make sure every other package introduced to Debian
later on does not collide with our binaries.

By policy, the mini-httpd maintainers need to declare a Conflicts
relation against our package as specified in policy § 7.4 if they want
to continue to provide this binary in future. An alternative would be to
rename the provided binary.

with kind regards,
