Add fair-balancer module to standard nginx

Bug #260005 reported by Neil Wilson on 2008-08-21

Fix Released

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nginx

I appreciate that we can't compile every nginx module into the standard package. However this module is heavily used in the field and adds a facility that is part of the standard apache package - to skip busy backends in the proxy balancer.

The module description is here:

I think the best way to push this forward would be to create a bug report with Debian, so that it gets into Ubuntu from there.
Looking at the diff alone, it seems to be quite a lot and this should be avoided in the Ubuntu/Debian delta. Apart from that, if it makes sense to have this included, it will make sense for Debian, too.

btw: is it possible to package this in a separate package, e.g. nginx-fair-balancer?

Please forward this to Debian and then link it here. Thanks.

Good suggestion, I submitted the bug to Debian. And yes, I assume the usual Debian-style packaging policy would result in creating a separate package for it.
