Good first issue

Issue #686


Issue description: In order to speed up the loading speed of pictures/images on the Apache APISIX official website, we need to migrate all pictures/images to CDN.

Issue #5305


Issue description:

Currently I has test the proxy-mirror plugin in apisix, but I find that the feature of this plugin is different from the ngx_http_mirror_module in nginx. The mirror moudle of nginx can add the uri behind the host in "proxy_pass" directive, for example:

location / {
mirror /mirror;
proxy_pass http://backend;

location = /mirror {
proxy_pass http://test_backend$request_uri;

But when I test the proxy-mirror plugin in apisix dashboard, it prompts a message that the blank cannot be filled with URI. Will the proxy-mirror plugin be optimized to support the URI?

Issue #5342


Issue description: Share limit counter between routes.

To do this, you need to specify the key of the route's corresponding limit-count in lrucache so that the same limit object is shared across multiple routes. lrucache keys (hereafter called groups to distinguish them from limit keys) are currently generated automatically, ensuring that each route's group is independent. For this change, we need to be able to specify the group in the limit-count.

"limit-count": {
"group": "group_id_blah"
"count": 2,
"time_window": 60,
"rejected_code": 503,
"key": "remote_addr"

Note that the configuration of the same group needs to be the same, which currently needs to be guaranteed by the caller, otherwise the limit object obtained by the group will be different from the configuration.

Issue #5343


Issue description: Add a request_body switch to the schema, and each body can be used by expr to decide whether to log or not. Without this switch, the body is not logged.

"kafka-logger": {
"kafka_topic" : "test2",
"request_body": {
"expr": [
["request_length", "<", "1024"],
"key" : "key1",
"batch_max_size": 1,
"name": "kafka logger"

expr can be evaluated by lua-resty-expr. request body can be fetched by core.request.get_body.
