How to sponsor a feature request?

Hi, I have some interest in being able to use WebDAV in nginx with
enough conformance to be able to use it for file sharing (I think this
mainly means support for PROPFIND and OPTIONS ?)

Is it affordable to either “encourage” development of this feature, or
are their regular people who can pickup development jobs like this?

I have had a brief look at what is required (mostly by comparing to the
various PHP/Perl workarounds) and it mostly looks straightforward
(especially if it’s acceptable to cheat and assume that allprop is in
effect and all properties are always returned)

Is there a recommended way to progess? Just for reference, I’m not a
huge business with big pockets, so please keep suggestions moderate?

Thanks

You may try Roman A.'s module:

Oh cool. Thanks

Forgive me one more question:

The documentation gives examples of webdav permissions such as:
dav_access user:rw group:rw all:r;

What do these groups actually refer to? Is this a straight mapping to
unix groups/users?

Ideally my users have login tokens which are their email addresses. Any
suggestions on how to set auth access to users and groups of users given
they don’t have local unix accounts?

Thanks

This is about chmod on files created (that is, the above means
“chmod 0664”), it has nothing to do with particular user names.
All created files will be owner by nginx user (the one set with
“user” directive, see http://nginx.org/r/user).

Simpliest solution is to use auth basic module, see
http://nginx.org/r/auth_basic.
