** Summary changed:

- mod_http2 is not available under Apache 2.4.23 / Ubuntu 17.04 xenial
+ mod_http2 is not available in Apache

** Summary changed:

- mod_http2 is not available in Apache
+ [FFe] mod_http2 is not available in Apache

** Description changed:

+ Feature Freeze justification (multiple):
+ 1) This is an entirely new, opt-in feature, currently not available to
+ users. They would need to enable said feature i order to use it.
+ 2) We intend to examine SRU of this feature to 16.04 (and thus would
+ also need to SRU to 17.10 if we wait until 18.04 to do it.) The change
+ is coming either way :)
+ 3) We want to maximize the exposure/testing of HTTP/2 before 18.04
+ releases; having it in 17.10 will assist with that.
+ 4) From a practical perspective, this reduces our delta to Debian.

  mod_http2 for HTTP/2 is not available in folder /etc/apache2/mods-available
  (/etc/apache2/mods-available/http2.load does not exist)
  HTTP/2 (originally named HTTP/2.0) is the second major version of the
  HTTP network protocol used by the World Wide Web.
  In January 2016 it was decided not to put http/2 in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  because the code is too young and not compatible with a 5 years support:
  "Don't build experimental http2 module for LTS:"
  => https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/zesty/+source/apache2/+changelog
  Ubuntu 17.04 has a support of 9 months and the http/2 code exists for 2
  years. It is no longer necessary to disable http/2.
