As most of you are already aware, we have a number of community members who are in charge of OS Repos (such as CentOS, Debian, etc…) and actively take the ModSecurity source code for stables releases
and then compile it for their OS platforms. I can not stress the importance of this effort. Based on past ModSecurity User Surveys, more than 50% of the user obtain ModSecurity by using their OS package manager software. It is for this reason that we need
to ensure that we (the ModSecurity team) work with you all as package managers for your respective OS to get the latest and greatest versions into your repos in a timely manner.
To that end, we will make sure to announce on this mail-list whenever we release a new version of ModSecurity. If there is anything else that we can do to help make this process easier or if
you have any recommendations for this process, please speak up!
Thanks again for all of your help.
