Ticket #24 (closed design: fixed)
Requiring Allow in 405 responses
|Reported by:||firstname.lastname@example.org||Owned by:|
In RFC 2616, section 10.4.6 405 Method Not Allowed:
The method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the Request-URI. The response MUST include an Allow header containing a list of valid methods for the requested resource.
which has the effect of requiring that a server advertise all methods to a resource. In some cases, method implementation is implemented across several (extensible) parts of a server and thus not known. In other cases, it may not be prudent to tell an unauthenticated client all of the methods that might be available to other clients.
