OK, let's suppose you're packaging this one. Then you have to depend
on Apache too. What URL would you put it under? "/achiveo"? What if it's
been configured away from htdocs/? What if mod_rewrite is used for
terminfo-like hashing, so it's really searched for under htdocs/achiveo?
and so on, and so on.
Bottom line: Debian is not yet ready for packaging of web applications
I wouldn't fault Debian, but rather the fact that web applications are
not yet ready for hassle-free distribution.
(How come most applications work with ./configure;make;make install, while
each web application is "put this here, that there, change this to point
to that, etc."?)
