This is generally not a good idea unless the upstream developers use
Debian actively and maintain it.  Instead, it's usually better for the
Debian packager to maintain a separate revision control repository that
has the packaging information.

Getting Filedrawers into Debian proper is one of my goals, and I'm happy
to find people here at Stanford to help with that.

Debian hasn't supported Apache 1 for years.  The best solution is
probably to drop the Apache 1 support completely.
