nginx in Debian and Ubuntu

Please note Debian won't ship nginx 0.5 in their next release, Etch.
0.5.13 is available in Sid (development version) but Etch is stuck with
0.4.13. I requested an unfreeze, but it was denied (on the grounds of
'we won't ship newer software')

Ubuntu, however, will hopefully ship nginx 0.5.13 in their next release,
Feisty. As in Debian, they were stuck with 0.4.13 but I requested an
unfreeze which was granted (on the grounds of 'why not? it's stable')

In both operating systems, 0.5.13 has live binary substitution support
and it's built with:

        ./configure --conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf \
--pid-path=/var/run/ \
--http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access.log \
--http-proxy-temp-path=/var/lib/nginx/proxy \
        --http-fastcgi-temp-path=/var/lib/nginx/fastcgi --with-debug
--with-http_stub_status_module \
        --with-http_flv_module --with-http_ssl_module

Please contact me if you need any further help about nginx in Debian and
Ubuntu. And thanks for your great work, people!
