Install XKey vmod
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

https://github.com/varnish/libvmod-xkey

This allows us to do alternate hashes for purging (e.g. article ID keys or thumbnail keys based on the original, etc)

May require Varnish 4.1 specifically, as opposed to 4.0.

The XKey vmod is part of a collection of VMODs called varnish-modules, already packaged in Debian.

I've just added a versioned build-dep on varnish > 4 to make sure the package can be built on Jessie. It's now a matter of building the package on copper and testing it out.

varnish-module is now available for testing on apt.wikimedia.org (jessie-wikimedia/backports).
