Bug Description

libapache2-mod-xsendfile needs packaging. It is a port from the lighttp-xsendfile-mechanism to apache2:

"mod_xsendfile is a small Apache2 module that processes X-SENDFILE headers registered by the original output handler.
If it encounters the presence of such header it will discard all output and send the file specified by that header instead using Apache internals including all optimizations like caching-headers and sendfile or mmap if configured."

I will attach a first packaging attempt to this ticket within the next days for review.

I would really like to see this package in Ibex. Is there any step I can take now?

Me too, and yes you can see it in intrepid, Id head on over to #ubuntu-motu and get your packages sponsored.

Hi, I did apt-get update (I use jaunty with unverse, multiverse, restricted, jaunty-backports, jaunty-security) and I'm not able to apt-get install this package. Is there anything else I should do?
