Subject accept-encoding: identity doesn't work
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2004 20:21:25 GMT

I'm working with Apache 1.3.29 and while testing with a self-build 
http-client, I noticed that Apache doesn't respond correctly according 
to the accept-encoding header. The RFCs say, that if the Accept-Encoding 
header is empty or if Accept-Encoding header is "identity", no coding 
shall be done. So I was sending a HTTP/1.1-POST request with 
"Accept-Encoding: identity" and "Accept-Encoding: ", but Apache 
responded (and coded acordingly) with "Transfer-Encoding: chunked". Did 
I miss anything? That's not, what's defined in the RFCs, right? I'm not 
sure if this is a bug or if I'm just getting it wrong.
