Wweb-application-works-only-with-apache

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

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".
