nginx (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


 * NGINX 1.17.x has been retired in favor of 1.18.x branch

 * NGINX 1.18.0 is directly based off of 1.17.10 (already in the repositories) with no other major changes but a version string change and no functional differences

 * The server team in the past several LTS cycles has wanted to get latest stable into the LTS as soon as it was able. While attempted to get in before release, it was NACK'd and requested to SRU the version string change.

[Test Case]

 * N/A

[Regression Potential]

 * None - no code changes except a version string change.

[Other Info]

 * During Focal cycle, we have always planned to update nginx to 1.18.0, or SRU it soon after Focal release. This finishes off this plan to get nginx 1.17.0 stable into the repositories.

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

$ git log --pretty=oneline release-1.17.10..release-1.18.0
e6b3a11581a8040baf7aded3319b0dec433b2461 (tag: release-1.18.0) nginx-1.18.0-RELEASE
6acdee5e3213fc6054f3bbb23a44ef2576278f63 Stable branch.
3ba88365b5acef17f01671cd969c909dee5e2cde release-1.17.10 tag

I agree there aren't any changes in between 1.17.10 and 1.18.0.

Unsure about the change though.

  Reverse Depends: diaspora-common (
  Reverse Depends: fusiondirectory (1.3-2)
  Reverse Depends: kopano-webapp-nginx (3.5.14+dfsg1.orig-1)
  Reverse Depends: python3-certbot-nginx (0.39.0-1)
  Reverse Depends: rainloop (1.12.1-2)

as long as there are no hard dependencies on versioning (wonder if you're thinking in changing deb version as well)... Ubuntu SRU team would make the last call anyway.

Let me know if you're pursuing this, I'm flagging as a server team low priority queue item for now.

Thanks @teward!

Ah nm, I see you subscribed the release team already, their call then! Cheers o/

All autopkgtests for the newly accepted nginx (1.18.0-0ubuntu1) for focal have finished running.
The following regressions have been reported in tests triggered by the package:

piuparts/1.1.1build1 (amd64, ppc64el, s390x, arm64)

Please visit the excuses page listed below and investigate the failures, proceeding afterwards as per the StableReleaseUpdates policy regarding autopkgtest regressions [1].

RE: Failures

I don't think those failures in piuparts is NGINX related rather they are debootstrap related. Digging deeper though...

so there is no update to nginx stable version?

The piuparts test failures is fixed now. Up to the SRU team to review it.
