Description of problem:
The "mod_ssl" that ships with RHEL isn't really mod_ssl (www.modssl.org) is it? Isn't it Apache-SSL (www.apache-ssl.org)? I realize that there isn't a "mod_ssl" for Apache 2.0 and that it seems that in Apache 2.2 there is going to be an ASF "mod_ssl" (Apache-SSL renamed?), but right now this is all very confusing. The rpm information points to httpd.apache.org for the URL, and the documentation on the ASF website seems to be cleaner/more complete, but wouldn't it make more sense to name the package httpd-ssl or something similar as to not add to the confusion?

The "mod_ssl" in httpd 2.0 is based on Ralf Engelschall's mod_ssl, so has a
legitimate claim to the name! This FAQ entry describes the history:
