Is that a bug or a feature? I thought if something was
lintian/linda/pbuilder-safe, then it was good for release. pbuilder
definately considers each option, and there are great practical benefits in
situations like this; when debian finally moves over to apache 2.2, from
pbuilder's perspective, mod-bt shouldn't need any changes as it stands now.
But if I have to remove the "apr1 | apr0" sutff, then a new version of
mod-bt (and every other apache2 module) will be neccessary when the switch
to 2.2 happens.
Or is there another way around this?
Either way, I'll produce a new version within the next week with the
dependancies corrected to autobuilders' satisfaction.
