Bug#681545: apache2-dev: dh_apache2 postinst action should run during more actions

Hi Russ,

I'm finally coming back to the dh_apache issues you filed long ago.

Your explanation sounds right to me. However, we do not unconditionally
disable the module either. We only do so in case of postrm purge|remove
to ensure the web server is not reloaded without need. This makes the
abort-upgrade|abort-remove|abort-deconfigure operations a no op with
respect to Apache maintainer scripts.

Our goal should be to minimize the impact of an upgrade. Many people
tend to be annoyed when the web server is restarted during upgrades.
Hence, I do believe "configure" is correct, but I might try some of the
abort/failure cases you mentioned before deciding what to do eventually
with your bug.

Does my explanation make sense to you?

with kind regards,
