Subject Re: Caching PROPFIND
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2016 10:01:20 GMT
Just chatted with Julian Reschke shortly about this. It's certainly reasonable to do what you
describe. It might not be trivial to get it right, depending on request body, content-location
response header and exposed etag/last-mod/cache-control headers. The question is where to
re-validate against, for example.
