I am working on something where I need to be able to add a custom header to an outgoing NOTIFY response for a subscription.

We have the concept of "body generators" for adding stuff to the body of an outgoing NOTIFY, but I'm not seeing anything akin to "header generators" that would easily allow doing this.

I believe typically this is done by adding the header to the tdata pool, e.g. ast_sip_add_header(tdata, "Expires", buf) as one way of doing it.

However, res_pjsip_pubsub doesn't generate/initialize a pjsip_tx_data until after ast_sip_subscription_notify is already called, so it certainly can't be done before a pubsub module calls on the pubsub core to send the notify. Is there any way I've missed that allows us to access the tdata from a pubsub module, so we can add a header to the NOTIFY response?

I do see there is an ast_sip_subscription_response_data struct defined in res_pjsip_pubsub.h. However, this is used literally nowhere in the code, only defined, so it's not clear to me how this is supposed to be used, since nothing currently uses it. Was this intended to be used for this purpose, or something else?

If res_pjsip_pubsub would need to be extended to support this, would it reasonable to add a callback to a pubsub module that allows it access to the pjsip_tx_data, so it can do whatever it needs to with it, before the response gets sent? Or another preferred method of allowing modules to add headers?

Any insights or thoughts on this appreciated... thanks!
