I couldn’t find any Passenger related repo on you github account. Would it be possible to share that as well?

I have to admin, I don’t get it.. before, there was nginx-passenger. Now there is ruby-passenger, but according to your spreadsheet, it has been removed from nginx-1.2.0+. I assume, dotdeb does not provide an nginx-passenger flavor anymore and I have to built that package by myself?

Here is the state of Passenger in Dotdeb’s Nginx packages :
* Squeeze : passenger has been removed from nginx-extras>=1.2.x, but is available in the nginx-passenger dedicated flavor
* Wheezy : Passenger is not included at all. I’m thinking about including Passenger 4.0, but it requires a lot of work to have something clean and there’s nothing sure yet.

As an alternative on Wheezy, you could :
* use Nginx packages from
* use a third-party application server, such as Puma or Unicorn
