Or: How I spent an afternoon doing a deep dive into the RPM spec and solving a problem for myself tl;dr – Nginx Mainline packages are being built for Fedora & CentOS at copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/kyl191/nginx-mainline/ My webserver’s running nginx 1.4.7, a version that hasn’t gotten non-bugfix attention since March 2013, according to the changelog.
