Bug Description

I think that it would be extremely helpful to include the spnego module in nginx builds.


Risk considerations: this module is not enabled by default, which means that it should not affect nginx stability.

Usability: this module adds Kerberos authentication to nginx, allowing to implement transparent SSO for all services that are behind nginx.

Third party modules are not included in the PPAs without the modules being checked/enabled in Debian. This is to avoid much of a delta, since the PPAs get direct-from-Debian builds, with bugfix changes to fix FTBFS or other issues as time progresses.

As such, I forwarded this request up to Debian. This is now available here:

Please follow that bug for progress in the discussion for inclusion or noninclusion.
