yes, writing from memory:

upstream repo {
         server repo.parabolagnulinux.org;
         server parabolaweb.eu;

server {
     server_name parabola.mirror.eu;
     root /srv/http/parabola.mirror.eu;

     location ~ *.pkg.tar.?z$ {
          proxy_store /srv/http/parabola.mirror.eu$request_uri;
          proxy_store_access user:rw group:r all:r;

          proxy_pass http://repos;
