Subject Wrong etag sent with mod_deflate
Date Thu, 07 Dec 2006 00:42:22 GMT
Protocol issues really should be brought up on the dev list, with an
appropriate subject, and not left in bugzilla.

Entities gzip:ed by mod_deflate still carries the same ETag as the  
plain entiy,
causing inconsistency in ETag aware proxy caches.

I'll have a look later and see if I can fix it, but let me know if there
is already a patch in the works (that doesn't rely on mod_filter).
