Ticket #226 (closed editorial: incorporated)
proxies not supporting certain methods
|Reported by:||firstname.lastname@example.org||Owned by:||email@example.com|
|Component:||p2-semantics||Severity:||Active WG Document|
Part 2, 9.1 says:
"A proxy MUST NOT modify the Allow header field even if it does not understand all the methods specified, since the user agent might have other means of communicating with the origin server."
That is *very* misleading as it implies that it's somehow ok for a proxy not to implement a method it doesn't know about. However, the transmission semantics for methods are generic (see Part 1, except for a few well-defined exceptions).
See related issue #53.
