Actually, the debs are at http://piro.kabuki.sfarc.net/apache2/
If they're anywhere else, they're probably outdated - I don't think the
location robster gave even exists.

As for why they haven't been uploaded, we had a lot of work done on it
on one laptop, which is stuffed, and was sent to the UK for repairs.
It'll be uploaded when the Laptop O' Joy returns. Anyway, even when
apache2 *does* get uploaded, it'll only be parallel to apache. We've
packaged it in such a way that they will work side-by-side - a setup I
have currently.

apache2 isn't anywhere near prime-time yet; it's still in alpha stage,
they can't agree on a release to tag as a beta. Apache 1.3.x will stick
around in Debian for quite some time yet.
