web-application-works-only-with-apache

The package appears to be a web application but declares a dependency against apache2 without any alternative. Most web applications should work with any decent web server, thus such a package should be satisfied if any web server providing the virtual "httpd" package is installed. This can be accomplished by declaring a package relation in the form "apache2 | httpd".

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check apache2.
