Debian/Ubuntu PPA for Pound 2.7f
Mike Slinn <mslinn(at)micronauticsresearch.com>
2015-11-14 17:23:35 [ FULL ]
I put this PPA together for my own use. Please view this as a stopgap 
until an official PPA is available. No idea how much traffic this may 
generate. If traffic is low/cheap I'll keep this going.

$*sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://mslinn-ppa.s3.amazonaws.com
stable 
main'*
$*sudo apt-get update*

Now you can verify that the correct version will be installed like this:

$*sudo apt-cache policy pound*
pound:
   Installed: (none)
   Candidate:2.7f-0ubuntu1
   Version table:
      2.7f-0ubuntu1 0
         500 http://mslinn-ppa.s3.amazonaws.com/
stable/main amd64 Packages
      2.6-3 0
         500 http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/
trusty/universe amd64 Packages

Now install Pound 2.7f. You will be asked if you wish to install without 
verification. Answer with |y|.

Mike, thanks very much for this, is there anything to be aware of (that you are
aware of)? :)

Paul,

Gee, your question leaves a lot of scope, and I am unsure how to best 
respond.

I'm writing a series of lectures about devops for Play Framework 
applications. So far the SSL-specific material consists of thousands of 
words, two working projects and an exercise. Pound is only one moving 
part. I expect to release the lectures in an as-yet-unannounced 
Intermediate Play Framework course later this year on the 
scalacourses.com <http://scalacourses.com> web site.

One consideration to think about is how Pound interacts or shares 
responsibilities with firewall(s).
Another consideration might be how Pound coordinates with DNS for 
scheduled maintenance.

Have I been helpful or tangential?

Best,
Mike

Mike, both thank you :) All I was really driving at was whether there's
anything to be aware of when using your repo to get 2.7 on a Debian box vs. the
default repos which come with 2.6 with no sign of an official 2.7 package on
the way.

The functionality I want that is in 2.7 is 2048 bit DH, otherwise we're good
with 2.7 afaik.

Paul

Paul,

I used this package with the configuration I posted a couple of days ago 
and had no problem with 2048 bit DH.
As to issues, they tend to breed in the dark and bite when no one is 
looking.
