roundtrip of namespaces in mixed property content broken





------- Additional Comments From Christopher.D.Knight@nasa.gov  2003-03-28 23:26 -------
Here's the crux of the problem, modules/dav/main/props.c#dav_prop_exec does not
pass the namespace to the store hook:

err = (*propdb->db_hooks->store)(propdb->db, &name, ctx->prop, propdb->mapping);

The function handling the "store" has no idea how to map the namespace id back
to the name for deserialization. For the mod_dav_fs, it will have to store it in
some normalized form on the backend.

It should pass this namespace array, like:

err = (*propdb->db_hooks->store)(propdb->db, propdb->ns_xlate, &name, ctx->prop,
propdb->mapping);

or probably better would be to pass an apr_xml_doc type instead of apr_xml_elem.

'course, this is going to break any backend to mod_dav, but it is critical to
maintaining namespaces in property value tags. I've tested this exact change and
it resolved an issue with our backend (a variant on Catacomb.)
