IIRC there was still a problem with webdav or something like that
(I cannot remember what was exactly the problem though).

And I just wanna add that all people who tried to reach the "apache team"
see their messages to fall in a semi-blackhole (since Adam answered

To my point of view, the Debian apache status is _unknown_ since more

So, that's a clear example where the team maintenance can be as useless
as letting only one people maintaining a package.
