Bug#633897: apache2.2-common: a2enmod does not care for dependencies for authz_svn

reassign 633897 subversion

that's right. Some modules have such dependencies. They can be expressed
in module load files by maintainers of the respective modules.

Thus, in this case subversion maintainers should make sure dependent
modules are declared as dependency in their module .load file.

In some rare cases there are load order dependencies which could be
worked around upstream, but if that's not possible we have a documented
policy how to handle this in our PACKAGING guide [1].

Our guide should suffice to cover this case, hence I'm reassigning to
subversion maintainers providing your modules in question. Please
reassign back if the maintainers think this should be addressed in
a2enmod (I disagree though).

with kind regards,
