This sounds like a good Idea. Yes I'm late in this discussion but I do
not follow debian-devel extremely regular and I missed this thread. :)

I'd like to help. I have a lot of ideas for how to configure apache
from other packages. Right now I have a special system at work but
it is not very compatible with the apache one. I also maintain wwwconfig-common
that does similar things. What I want is a better system because none of
what I have mentioned works very well. Wwwconfig-common works but it
should not exist at all because apache and the database tools should
provide this functionality. :)

See bug #112553 for my ideas of how things should be configured.

Great idea. Something like the debian-java policy.

Just subscribed. :)
