Hi John

We are no longer using the stable/unstable distinction. Now, if we want
something tested before making the final release, we do a release
candidate (and in the future, will emphasize that only experienced users
should download it for testing). We now consider all our greenstone 2
releases "stable".

Greenstone binary releases will, at this stage, always install Apache.
If you wish to use an existing Apache (or other web server), then you
need to rename the apache-httpd folder to something else, and set up
your Apache appropriately.
The Greenstone installation will not modify an external Apache.
