I'm reaching out in response to your post on nginx's mailing list.

I'm interested in developing purging feature for nginx's cache. Since I run 
my own software development company, we are talking about funded development 

>From what I understand, you'd like to allow IPs from "allow_purge" to 
PURGE /some/content HTTP/1.1
and receive either 200 OK, 403 Forbidden or 404 Not Found.

Is that correct? Does this cover all functionality that you would like to 

Would you prefer to see this as "standalone module" or patch / modification 
for existing nginx code?

My company is located and registered in Poland, and I believe that yours is 
in Sweden, so you can get intra-EU invoice, as long as you can provide valid 
EU-VAT number.

Best regards,
