I have a Python 3 web app so mod_wsgi < 3.1 doesn't cut it for me. However, on my Ubuntu 9.10 installation there doesn't seem to be a package for mod_wsgi 3.1.

  1. Is there an alternative repository that has a package for mod_wsgi 3.1?
  2. There's a new Ubuntu release not so long from now, will it contain mod_wsgi 3.1?
  3. Some other distro ready with mod_wsgi 3.1 to recommend?
  4. Maybe my best bet is to compile it myself? From a quick google it looks like I only need the python and apache dev packages installed.

For question 2, it looks like Lucid (10.04) will have 2.8. Probably compiling it yourself should not be too difficult.

Which is sad in itself given that even Ubuntu and Redhat Fedora have mod_wsgi 3.2 in their repositories now. Ubuntu just isn't keeping up these days if they only have mod_wsgi 2.8. :-( – Graham Dumpleton Apr 12 '10 at 5:37
Graham, ubuntu has packages for 3.2 and 3.3, but note that his asking about ubuntu version 9.10 means he is asking about ubuntu released in October, 2009 – stew Dec 13 '11 at 18:50
The answer was saying that 10.04 at the time would still only have 2.8. – Graham Dumpleton Dec 15 '11 at 2:01
