...But they are part of the apache configuration, so it would make
sense to group them logically with the rest of the apache
configuration.  Personally though, I like the way debian does this.

An example: I pulled squirrelmail onto a box tonight (as a quick
example, phpmyadmin is another).  It added
/etc/squirrelmail/apache.conf.  The README.Debian.gz states:


If you want to use squirrelmail with apache, it is recommended to
modify /etc/squirrelmail/apache.conf to your own wishes, and then add
a symlink to that file from /etc/apache{,-ssl,-perl,2}/conf.d, like:

 $ ln -s /etc/squirrelmail/apache.conf

Alternatively, you could also 'Include' the configuration file in the
relevant apache configuration file(s)

The phpmyadmin package has a similarly worded README.Debian file.

It's configuration, whether commonly edited or not, so it should go in
etc somewhere.  Debian has a really nice apache setup and 'add on'
integration.  We follow their lead in other ways, why not here too?
