Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 39727] Incorrect ETag on gzip:ed content
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2009 14:23:56 GMT

--- Comment #30 from Henrik Nordstrom <>  2009-02-03 06:23:55 PST
Just to clarify the breakage:

GET /some-object

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Vary: Accept-Encoding
ETag: W/"a"

GET /some-object
Accept-Encoding: gzip
If-None-Match: W/"a"

HTTP/1.1 304 Not Modified
ETag: W/"a"

If you are unsure what this is about, see 13.6  Caching Negotiated Responses.

To explain it in other words: Two resource versions MAY share the same weak
ETag (but MUST NOT when using a strong ETag), but two incompatible resource
representations MUST NOT.
