Re: apache2 wheezy backport

Hi Matt,

That would be a rather large piece of work. It would be incompatible 
with basically all apache modules and web-app packages in wheezy, so 
those would need backporting, too. Considering that there is still 
plenty of work to do in jessie, I don't think a backport will happen 
anytime soon.

If you are only looking for ECC/ECDHE, you could try this patch
http://people.apache.org/~sf/ECC-2.2-v2.diff on the wheezy package. I 
think we may include it in a future wheezy point release, but I would 
like it to be aproved for upstream 2.2.x, first.

Updating to jessie seems like the only sane solution right now.
