The problem with editing apache2.conf is that future distro changes get
lost. Once you edit a config file the end user is given two options
during an upgrade. They can either replace the current file with the
packaged maintainer's file or keep the edited file. So either the
system loses the local change or else it because distinct to a default
ubuntu configuration. The greater problem is depending on which version
of apache2 was installed at the point that the change was made, the
configuration can look different.
If this log line was moved to a file within conf.d then I could set up a
divert which over-wrote the config without disrupting the package
maintainers future changes.
