Sorry for the messy email I’m in a lab with a crappy keyboard that is
too hard to use properly and the mouse is basically useless

oh, i’ve got a nice little wishlist going
The only idea of implementing mod_svn from scratch in Nginx is crazy :).
why is that? isn’t it just DAV? it just needs to support some more
OPTIONS commands or something? (I could be off my rocker, I thought I
read that somewhere)
and what, have an /etc/nginx/upstreams.conf file that i manually

external things come in to play. but simplifying the software stack
would be amazing, and it could be an -optional- module in nginx
to implement it.

support in my Python WSGI framework.
I don’t care as much about digest myself but it was something someone
brought up. This is open source software too. Doesn’t anyone do
anything anymore just for the ego boost? I know I would be if I
knew some C!
- have a way to log statistics (simple byte and request counter) per
Host: header, right now flatfile parsing and stuff for that basic info

i am right now. but for basic statistics… seems like major overkill,
especially when you start looking at gigs of data from multiple
webservers and having to parse/merge the data
- cluster manager (manage multiple nginx instances, like zeus’ web
Isn’t it possible to use some existing tool?
like cpanel? etc? all of those suck. have you ever used zeus’s? it has
all the capabilities of the webserver avaialble. it needs to be a tool
designed around nginx’s capabilities and such. not just “setup foo.com
