Subject 411 Length Required response to HTTP/1.0 request
Date Wed, 09 Oct 1996 12:58:08 GMT

I've changed mod_fastcgi to work with a recent 1.2-dev snapshot
(apache_19961008130009.tar.gz).  In running my tests I've
noticed that 1.2-dev requires Content-length to be supplied 
on all HTTP/1.0 PUT requests, giving a 411 response if not.

I may be misreading the HTTP/1.1 spec, but my take was that
while the server is free to send an HTTP/1.1 response to an
HTTP/1.0 request, it should continue to accept all valid HTTP/1.0
requests.  Content-length was optional in HTTP/1.0.
