Subject Re: Coniguring 301/302 redirects to track an fspath rename
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:44:07 GMT
Yeah... I think the best we can do in the OPTIONS is to hint. It can't
really be more than a hint, since a connection can be used for N various
operations.

What might be more ideal is to respect redirects after that initial
OPTIONS. Then your module could just wait until it knows the right data.

It's not an easy problem. If we get a 301, then we should definitely
rewrite the working copy to use the new URL. But... is a 301 correct, if
"old" revisions still work? ....

Cheers,
