Also for debian it would be 2 or 3 versions, so it does not matter. We will NOT ship a custom nginx version, it is just to much work for build and testing - this has been discussed again a few weeks ago within the team.
I understand the message. I was only saying that if you stopped supporting Debian you might have more time (and I use Debian myself) with the hope that in time you will start considering the idea. It is my long term strategy… Just drop the idea and then wait until you completely change your minds and devote your lives to develop for free.
The mind in that case will not be changed, because providing a own custom nginx version will cost multiple thousand us dollars monthly, calclulated in needed time for compilation, support and testing. The only way would be to have someone who takes over the expenses (3000-4000 usd monthly) - until then and also for the future, this is a clear “no”. Also dropping debian isnt an option.
