When using WebDAV/CalDAV/CardDAV, there is the 207 multi-status response which can get quite large (for instance, multiple requested VCard resources can be comprised in address-data elements in a multi-get response).

If I read ngx_http_gzip_header_filter(ngx_http_request_t *r) correctly, it only compresses if the status is HTTP_OK, HTTP_FORBIDDEN or HTTP_NOT_FOUND.

Would it be possible to add 207 multi-status to this list?

An experimental patch in ticket #394 is waiting for someone to do some interoperability testing. Please reopen that ticket if you are willing to do this.

The Nextcloud contacts application uses PROPFIND requests and 207 code in browser.
It takes really long to wait for 400+kb is loading from the server.
