Package: w3c-markup-validator
Version: 0.7.4-5.2
Severity: normal

Hi all,

suppose someone has an apache2 config block like
<Directory />
order allow,deny
deny from all

Now the symlinked config of this package doesn't override that. Could you
please add something like

<Directory /usr/share/w3c-markup-validator/html/>
	Order allow,deny
	allow from all

like e.g. phpmyadmin or phpldapadmin do?
