Note: Originally I raised an Ubuntu bug, but they said raise it upstream with you. But I couldn't find a 'new bug' button on debian apache2 package.

Subject: [Bug 1708426] Re: add mod_brotli
In the CHANGES file of the Artful source I see:
*) mod_brotli: Add a new module for dynamic Brotli (RFC 7932)
That arrived in 2.4.26, so only Artful and newer would have access to
this module. I, however, do not see the .so in /usr/lib/apache2/modules
or any .conf in /etc/apache2/mods-available.
In the configure script, under optional features, list the following:
--enable-brotli Brotli compression support
In the debian/configure script the ./configure command is found under
the "override_dh_auto_configure" rule. It appears that if support
wants to be added it should be appended to the configure command line.
This would require also making sure brotli is installed as well.
This bug is present in Debian as well. Therefore, this bug would be
best fixed directly in Debian, and then Ubuntu will pick up the fix
Would you mind filing a bug with Debian please?
