I have both php and httpd (aka apache2) assigned to me on bugzilla.  I
know php should have been in blfs-book cvs a long time ago..but all I can
say is that I don't have time to add it immediatly, however after the
23th, all I plan on doing is sitting down and working on it (and other lfs
stuff).  Recently Timothy's really been pushing me and sending me thinks
to help along, so it wont take me too long to get it added again.

You also have to remenber that httpd is a totally different package then
apache now.  Such that both can be installed side-by-side, and i've taken
that into consideration when I had commited the apache section.  httpd
will be able to use the same setup, just different directory names.
(/etc/httpd, /usr/lib/httpd, /var/log/httpd, etc)

You do understand the nature of apache2's and php's support and how they
interact with each other, right?  It's not exactly..uh.. "recommended"
right now :)  (at least not for anything of significant value ;o)

Anyways, if you want to help that would be great, as i've been planning
on resolving this issue as soon as i'm done my exams, having these bugs
assigned to me for nearly a year is getting absurd.
