Bug Description

The Security team has recently given the OK to enable HTTP/2 in NGINX for Xenial.

Please activate it for nginx-core, nginx-extras, nginx-full, and nginx-light.

Upstream, in Debian, it is being enabled for all versions as part of the dynamic modules changes; even though dynamic modules are not being enabled here, it would be good to ahve this enabled for all flavors. Debian anonscm git commit for this is, with being the Debian bug that has a 'pending' change.

Before I enable HTTP/2 in nginx-light, I will discuss with the Server team. Debian does, indeed, have it enabled in nginx-full and nginx-extras, and nginx-core will have it as it closely mirrors nginx-full.

This will be considered for the next upload, otherwise.

summary: - Please enable HTTP/2 in NGINX
+ Please enable HTTP/2 in NGINX for Xenial

We will not be enabling HTTP/2 for nginx-light. nginx-full and nginx-extras, as well as nginx-core, will have http/2 enabled.
