Nginx readers,

i have a webdav like server that serv files, and access it through nginx,
it is actually a subversion repo, so the files (and directory) are listed
in an
ugly html page, not recursively.


I am fishing for ideas to do something like

location /directroy.tar.gz {
  return tar_ball /directory/*;

which would do tar czvf - /directory/*

Of course this assume i wold somehow get the file list first ...

Please share clever ideas
