Hi -publicity,

This is a proposed entry for next debian-news:

In a message to debian-devel[1] Thomas Goirand proposed relaxing or even 
removing some dependencies of web applications on a web server package. 
This would help users wanting to install such web applications in 
chroots, while the web server is installed only outside the chroot. 
During the following discussions several solutions were proposed, 
including dummy web server packages to be provided by Debian. It was 
pointed out that such dummy packages are actually very easy to create 
with the less known equivs[2] package.

Kind regards,
