------- Additional Comments From slive@apache.org  2007-06-11 10:57 -------
I don't agree with "unprofessional". I certainly agree it is "uninformative",
but the site administrator can get the information they need from other
locations in the distribution. And anyone seeing this page who is not a site
administrator will not be helped by any amount of information we put there.

I'm curious about the "malformed" bit. Is there a spec saying that there needs
to be a trailing newline on html files? In any case, I don't see how it is
negatively affecting anybody.

As far as the content, we have tried every reasonable alternative for the
content of this page, including having text written by professional tech
writers. We still get more confused (and often abusive) messages than we care to
deal with. If you have suggestions, I'd be pleased to hear them.

I don't believe that omitting the page entirely is an improvement, since that
gives even less information to admins, gets hidden by MSIE's "friendly" error
messages, and doesn't provide an example of a page that can be easily replaced
with real content.

Finally, since this was originally a Ubuntu bug, I should point out that Ubuntu
is free to put whatever they want in the default index.html. Many third-party
distributors replace that page with their own info. But we'd request that any
contact information point towards the distributor, and not apache.
