I am planning to use nginx to cache large files dispersed across several

it has changed.

But it looks like the thread died out without any code being accepted.
Does anyone know if there has been progress on this feature? What I'm
trying to accomplish is:
1) Early detection of upstream file changes to force a cache refresh
2) Avoid fetching duplicate copies of upstream files due to bandwidth
It seems that as-is, the nginx proxy cache feature may not allow me to do
Thanks for any tips,
