Official packages v1.8.0 do NOT include the GeoIP module

Hello,

We are facing quite some trouble with the official nginx packages:
their nginx -V does not show any sign of the GeoIP module.

Confirmed for:

  • Debian package
  • CentOS 6 package

As I have not read any deprecation message anywhere, and since its
presence
is confirmed in earlier versions, why is it that way? Mistake?

​I was unable to report a bug in http://trac.nginx.org​ as I used to
connect to it through my Google account: ‘OpenID 2.0 for Google Accounts
has gone away’

B. R.

Has anyone else observed the same?
Is there any reason to that?

Package never has geoip module, because it requires extra library
(libgeoip).
Current policy is to include all module without extra dependencies, so
nginx
from packages depends on only on pcre & openssl.

Thanks Sergey,

I naively though every module being documented on the official website
were
included.
There was/is no clear documentation about what is (not) included in the
official binary, helping people to decide whether it is feasible to
switch
from custom builds to official ones.

Would it be possible to publish your short and efficient answer
somewhere
on the download page for official packages?

I just added configure arguments list and the module policy to the
package download page.

Thank you Sergey!
