Subject more on debian package...
Date Sun, 04 Jan 1998 04:33:16 GMT
this is "1.3b3-10" as they call it.

For some odd reason, they distribute it with all the results of running
Configure, ie. Makefiles etc.

They include a file with their own paths, which I like:

--- apache-1.3b3.orig/src/modules/debian/debian_apache.h
+++ apache-1.3b3/src/modules/debian/debian_apache.h

[...]

We should really provide support for something like this in the 
distributed version.

For some reason, they change:

-Rule PARANOID=no
+Rule PARANOID=yes

They go crazy adding nearly every module.  Yea, they are dynamically
loaded but I'm not sure I see the point.

Include a buildmark.c.rej:

Note sure what this refers to:

+  * Updated patch to prevent denial-of-service vulnerability (#16468) --
+    previous patch could cause malloc-related problems.

did they foolishly stick some bogus patch in there for a while?
