Bug Description


 * NGINX 1.9.x series has been retired in favor of 1.10.x stable branch.
 * NGINX 1.10.0 is based on 1.9.15, and is an exact duplicate of the repository at nginx for 1.9.15 at the time of 1.10.0 being cut from it.
 * The Server Team has wanted to SRU to get NGINX 1.10.0 into Xenial as soon as it was available, which was today (April 26, 2016)
 * There are no code level changes except for the Ubuntu Branding patch being updated in it, and a version string bump.

[Test Case]

 * N/A - This bumps a version string, and that's all. It will need a rebuild though.

[Regression Potential]

 * Zero - no code changes are introduced which would introduce regressions.

[Other Info]

 * During Xenial cycle, we have always planned to update nginx to 1.10.0, or SRU it soon after Xenial release. This finishes off this plan to get nginx 1.10.0 stable into the repositories.

 * Upstream change log for 1.10.0 (http://nginx.org/en/CHANGES-1.10):

Changes with nginx 1.10.0 26 Apr 2016

    *) 1.10.x stable branch.

 * This only changes the version string upstream. Other changes are a result of post-Xenial configuration issue discoveries, or an updated patch due to the version bump.

An updated version has been pushed to Yakkety and is sitting in the Unapproved queue until things start being processed from there. Bug #1575217 is the bug that refers to the Yakkety update.

no longer affects: nginx (Ubuntu Yakkety)

Build-testing the SRU in a PPA:


The Yakkety version has already been accepted into Yakkety proposed, and is building there currently. This version here has a lower version string as a result.

Just some testing notes:

* nginx 1.9.15 -> 1.10.0 upgrade tests (nginx-core):
  - Upgrades work without issue.
* Default site settings work out of the box.
* SSL and HTTP/2 both work
* Server banner advertises as "1.10.0 (Ubuntu)" as it should be doing.

Hello Thomas, or anyone else affected,

Accepted nginx into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nginx/1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

I ran upgrade and installation tests, as well as version string tests, and SSL support tests. All tests passing, this should be good to release to xenial-updates.
