W web-application-depends-on-apache2-data-package

All reports of web-application-depends-on-apache2-data-package for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package appears to be a web application but declares a package relation with apache2-bin, apache2-data or any of its transitional packages. However, web applications are rarely bound to a specific web server version. Thus, they should depend on apache2 only instead. If a web application is actually tied to a particular binary version of the web server a dependency against the virtual apache2-api-YYYYMMDD package is more appropriate.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: apache2, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 0, overridden: 2, total: 2
