Extend UFW config for nginx to support HTTP/3

Asked by Marcus Bointon

The nginx-common package for 24.04 noble includes the file /etc/ufw/applications.d/nginx: https://packages.ubuntu.com/noble/all/nginx-common/filelist
This file defines some UFW firewall presets. I'd like to extend this to include a config that supports HTTP/3, which requires listening on UDP port 443 in addition to the usual TCP ports 80 and 443.

6 months ago I submitted a patch to the upstream Debian UFW repo to try to add this:

However, this has received no attention at all, so I'm wondering if it could be included in Ubuntu's package instead.

How should I go about getting this addition in?

I just noticed that noble is shipping nginx 1.24, which doesn't have QUIC support. However, 1.25, that does, was released 11 months ago. Why is noble shipping an old version of nginx?

Ah, now I see that 1.24 is still the stable release and 1.25 is mainline, which I guess explains that. I'd still like to know where and how I should submit this patch for future versions.
