[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#802804: roundcube: Apache configuration file installation should be documented

Package: roundcube
Version: 1.1.2+dfsg.1-4~bpo8+2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Although the documentation for the roundcube packages mentions the apache.conf
file, it might be useful to suggest how this file might be used. For example,
I ended up making a symlink...

ln -s /etc/roundcube/apache.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/roundcube.conf

Even though this is probably insufficient for some deployments, and even though
experienced administrators would be familiar with the necessary extra work, it
might be a good idea to mention such things explicitly. I did wonder whether
something special had been done to make Apache see the file where it was
installed, but that would be quite surprising and probably a policy violation.

I also wondered why one wouldn't just install a file into sites-available,
anyway. It is "available" and not "enabled", after all.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in reading this request!
