It would be nice if mod_dav could trigger an action when a file or directory is added, modified or deleted. This would enable me to run a virus scanner, send out an email or an sms, copy the file to a version control system, etc. I'm thinking of a simple setting like

DAVNotify /usr/local/bin/davtrigger.sh

This would allow me to execute any action I like.

The command in question should then probably be called with these arguments:
- the manipulation (add, modify, move, delete, ...)
- username of the user who made the manipulation
- the path to the manipulated file

Having this would really make me happy. Thanks for considering.
