Package: php7.0-common
Version: 7.0.5-3
Severity: normal


today's upgrade installed php7.0-fpm, which in turn starts a separate

The reason is the following Depends in php7.0:

php7.0-fpm | libapache2-mod-php7.0 | php7.0-cgi

The package description of php7.0-fpm though reads:
"Note that MOST Apache users probably want the libapache2-mod-php7.0

If that is the case, why is libapache2-mod-php7.0 not the first
alternative, so pulled in by default instead of php7.0-fpm?
