Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1128) Erroneous "identity" Content-Coding supplied to Content-Encoding header for uncompressed attachments
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 17:06:05 GMT
Erroneous "identity" Content-Coding supplied to Content-Encoding header for uncompressed attachments
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-1128
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1128
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HTTP Interface
    Affects Versions: 1.0.2
         Environment: CouchOne
            Reporter: Andrew Gleave
            Priority: Minor


According to the HTTP / 1.1 spec, the "identity" content-coding is to be used used only in
the Accept- Encoding header, and SHOULD NOT be used in the Content-Encoding header. Currently,
any uncompressed attachment which is retrieved from CouchDB will have Content-Encoding:identity
specified in its response header.

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html#sec3.5

All browsers and most proxies seem to ignore the header and function correctly. However, Microsoft's
ISA 2006 proxy seems to reject the entire request, meaning all attachments are inaccessible
from behind the proxy.
