Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45341] Apache reverse-proxy returns 304 on non-conditional GET request
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2008 16:39:02 GMT

"The only reason I can image why the cache did a conditional request on the
backend in this situation is because the cached entity passed the expiration
date given in the cached response expires header."

It hasn't passed the expiration time it my testing. I would say it's requesting
a refresh because Safari specified "max-age:0", and mod_cache is discarding the
known, future expiration time. That is the first thing I would fix, and then
the recovery procedure for when the expiration date has passed. (I never expect
quick resolutions, or any resolutions, unless I'm providing a patch and it's
small, so no worries there. I'm just trying to document the existing behavior
and determine what would be the best correct behavior, for other people that
run into the problem or that might want to fix it.)
