puppet-httpd is the openstack-infra fork of puppetlabs-apache. We forked at the 0.0.4 release.
We forked because we were unable to upgrade to later versions of the apache module, and in some cases because we were unwilling to do this. The modern apache module takes the position of fully modelling the apache config file. The older module, that this forked from, takes the position of weakly modelling, it accepts a template and puts that in a vhost. This allows us to write our vhosts in the apache syntax with a thin erb layer on top of it.
However, with the apache module pinned to 0.0.4, we were unable to bring in new modules that depended on a newer apache module. Groups who consumed our puppet code downstream couldn't use the modern apache module either.
We forked to the httpd namespace so that this module (weakly modelling) and a modern puppetlabs-apache module (strongly modelling) could co-exist.
This also allows us to add features and bugfixes to this module without changing its weakly modelled architecture.
