virtual package for apache required?
Please lets discusse whether we need a virtual package for apache and
The problem is the following:
apache and apache-ssl share some common files like htpasswd or
mod_perl. As of this until now apache-ssl had to conflict with
apache. But since some people want to run apache and apache-ssl, and
some packages (as php) depend on apache, there is a problem.
With the newest release of apache-ssl I built a new package
apache-common, which has all the files which are common to apache and
apache-ssl depends now on apache or apache-common as long as apache
don't use the same scheme. apache-ssl also provides apache for the
dependent packages to work. BUT apache-common would normaly have to
conflict with apache because of the common files, but it can't now,
because it would then conflict with the provide apache of apache-ssl.
I propose the following:
apache and apache-ssl should both depend on the apache-common and
provide apache-virtual (or else) and the other packages (as php) could
then depend on it.
