I'm not yet committed to doing this. I'd like to see first how many mainstream servers will respect If-Modified-Since when given as part of an HTTP/1.0 request (in comparison to how they respond when it's part of an HTTP/1.1 request). If common servers ignore it in HTTP/1.0, but not in HTTP/1.1, that'd be an excellent case for holding off until we're doing HTTP/1.1 requests. Also, I don't think "removing the previous HEAD request" code is entirely accurate: we probably would want to detect when a server is feeding us non-new content in response to If-Modified-Since, and adjust to use the current HEAD method instead as a fallback. - -Micah vinothkumar raman wrote: > This mean we should remove the previous HEAD request code and use > If-Modified-Since by default and have it to handle all the request and > store pages if it is not returning a 304 response > > Is it so? > > > On Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 11:06 PM, Micah Cowan <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: >> Follow-up Comment #4, bug #20329 (project wget): >> >> verbatim-mode's not all that readable. >> >> The gist is, we should go ahead and use If-Modified-Since, perhaps even now >> before there's true HTTP/1.1 support (provided it works in a reasonable >> percentage of cases); and just ensure that any Last-Modified header is sane. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.7 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFIvb7t7M8hyUobTrERAsvQAJ4k7fKrsFtfC4MQtuvE3Ouwz6LseACePqt2 8JiRBKtEhmcK3schVVO347A= =yCJV -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
