Hello Nginx developers,
speaking to Maxim K. over Twitter, suggested this would be the
better place to get an answer to my suggestion.
Basically what I would like to see is the ability to use a rewrite
directive without the need to capture the current URI, which in turn
overwrites $1,$2,$x captures made within a location directive.
Best to explain via an example:
As you can see, this works (and works well) but the need to use “set” to
save copies of $1/$2 seems a little wasteful.
Digging through the documentation I can’t seem to find a way of using
rewrite without blowing away/not capturing the current URI.
