Subject Re: [PATCH] option to remove default listener
Date Sat, 26 May 2001 00:20:22 GMT
do you use include directives or something to include partial configs for
each of the services you want to activate?

can your package manager handle multiple packages owning a file, say
/etc/apache_enabled ?  if so then it should be trivial to create
/etc/apache_enabled in every one of your packages that needs apache.
presumably if your package manager handles multiple owners of the same
file it keeps reference counts or something and will deal with deleting
/etc/apache_enabled when there are no more owners.
