Subject: [Zope-dev] DAV collections, index_html, and HEAD
> Objects that inherit from Folder (and therefore from Collection) and
> also have an index_html that's a Python method (or othewise
> nonvanilla, presumably) return a 405 (Method Not Allowed) for HTTP
> HEAD requests.
> Zope 2.5.1 raises on line 57 of Collection.py. The object raises if
> its index_html member doesn't have a HEAD attribute.
> Surely it's a bug to only give HEAD for objects that return an
> index_html via hasattr/getattr. What about getitem,
> __bobo_traverse__, and __call__? Shouldn't we find the object to HEAD
> via ZPublisher? And aren't we bypassing the access control checks,
> Would it be a good idea to try and make up a HEAD response for
> arbitrary attributes that don't support it (such as Python methods)?
> Perhaps by publishing them internally, and picking whatever we can
> from RESPONSE, computing Content-Length from the returned stream if
> necessary? It's inefficient, but at least it's cache-friendly... and
> better for tools (er, linbot) that assume that if it can't be found
> via HEAD, it isn't there.
