Subject: apache: restrict /usr/doc to localhost
Date: Thu, 4 Mar 1999 11:51:12 -0500
Package: apache
Version: 1.3.3-7
Severity: wishlist

The following addition to /etc/apache/access.conf will do it:
<Directory /usr/doc>
AllowOverride None
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from localhost

Yes it's a bit over restrictive, but the fact that anyone can get a list 
of debian packages installed on a system running a web server seems
like a bad idea to me.
