Bug#729989: apache2: Consider applying patch for upstream bug 29744 (CONNECT over SSL) to wheezy

Package: apache2.2-common
Version: 2.2.22-13
Severity: wishlist

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=29744 prevents CONNECT working over SSL.

The classic use-case for this is tunnelling SSH over a 'normal' HTTP SSL connection to avoid
troublesome proxies and firewalls, as per http://dag.wiee.rs/howto/ssh-http-tunneling/

This bug has been fixed in Apache 2.4, however that's not much use to those of us running stable
with Apache 2.2.222

Please consider back-porting the patch from the upstream bug to wheezy:


I'd be happy to help in any way I can. I want this feature, but having to recompile mod_proxy
and diverge from the official packages is a step too far.

Alternatively, if there's a prospect of Apache 2.4 making it into backports for wheezy, that would
be a very acceptable solution.
