Hi everyone, i have just released a cgi_plugin for the uWSGI server.

This allows nginx to easily run cgi scripts passing requests to the uWSGI
server (very similar to the current fcgiwrap solution, but with all of the
features of uWSGI and with an implementation fully compatible with apache)

Here is a preliminary doc:

The plugin should be versatile enough to support all of the cgi
most-exotic functions out there.

tested apps:

bugzilla (perl)
mailman (c+python)
viewvc (python)
drupal (php)
prestashop (php)
magento (php)

Currently you have to build the plugin via mercurial, but i plan to
release another -rc for 1.0 branch soon.
