  1. Re: Rewrite Performance Question (Juergen G.)

come some take a look at these rewrite rules if they are ok regarding

? ? ? ? ? ?rewrite ^(.*)$ last;

should be taken regarding content, nor must you copy or show them to anyone.

? ? ? ? ? ?rewrite ^/(.*)$$1 permanent;
Also, in the second server it’s better to use usual names instead of regex:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=KOI8-R

*) Feature: the "proxy_cache_bypass", "fastcgi_cache_bypass",
   "uwsgi_cache_bypass", and "s?gi_cache_bypass" directives.

*) Bugfix: nginx did not free memory in cache keys zones if there was
   an error during working with backend: the memory was freed only
   after inactivity time or on memory low condition.

Well, after this release, have I still to apply these patches?

[PATCH 1 of 2] Cache: fix sending of empty?
[PATCH 2 of 2] Cache: fix sending of stale responses

I mean, it seems it’s a bug introduced in nginx-devel 0.8.31 and it’s 6
months old, so could you apply these patches on the official tree (or
tell me why not)?

Thanks for your work,
