[Pkg-erlang-devel] possible MBF on your packages

Dear maintainers,

a few days ago, I suggested a mass bug filing on your packages, i.e.
almost all web servers in the archive, to achieve a common canonical
DocRoot for web applications installed through package management. The
goal is to more clearly state where web apps should put publicly
available files and avoid a per package configuration for our web
servers. Right now some packages configure apache2 and one or two other
web servers during postinst with help of debconf. Other packages don't
even bother.

We discussed a possible solution and I'm willing to file bugs.
Unfortunately just a few maintainers of packages providing httpd took
part in the discussion and I'm thus writing you directly to look for
some response. This goal is *only* achievable if we're on the same page

Find my MBF proposal at [1] and the discussion in the thread around it
for more details.

Please, do *not* simply answer this mail but rather target your concerns
and appreciation at the thread on debel-devel for the discussion to take
place there in public.

Thanks and sorry for this mass mail (which almost is a MBF :))
