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
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.
