Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45341] Apache reverse-proxy returns 304 on non-conditional GET request

(Jan does appear to be requesting also with a query string,

Yes, that is the sequence I have figured. But I'm not sure that the 304
response without an Expires header is strictly erroneous. If that is clear in
the protocol I can file it as a bug in Wicket instead of an improvement, but I
haven't been able to find anything definitive.

I don't see how a plain 304 "tells the cache that the cached response is
unusable and needs to be ejected". The cache has asked the back end if the
resource has changed since a date. The answer is no, and the cache would do
better to serve what it has. Relaying the 304 brings about a definite client
error condition that would not have occurred without the cache.
