There were things like pre-configured php-support, an ssl-howto and an
index.html with the /old) arch logo. Of course there will be an install
message before moving to extra. For everything else there is excellent
documentation at apache.org.

You got me wrong. :-) /usr/share is used only for the datadir. According to
configure this is for "read-only architecture-independent data". And those
things should stay in /usr/share. There is no pre-configured documentroot
where you have to put your webpages. That's up to the user who has to adjust
httpd.conf to his needs. Nobody should put his web content
under /usr/share. :-) But there will be an install message about this.

There "should" be no downtime for upgraders because I have only change the
default config. (But maybe I have missed something)
