Ticket #375 (closed design: fixed)
|Reported by:||email@example.com||Owned by:|
|Component:||p6-cache||Severity:||In WG Last Call|
Section 19.3 "Tolerant Applications" of the HTTP 1.1 RFC (2616) says on the subject of parsing dates from HTTP client applications:
If an HTTP header incorrectly carries a date value with a time zone other than GMT, it MUST be converted into GMT using the most conservative possible conversion.
Does this mean that the server MUST convert a non-GMT date value to GMT? Or does it mean that if (optionally) it chooses to convert a non-GMT date value to GMT (rather than rejecting it) then it MUST use the most conservative possible conversion?
What is meant by "the most conservative possible conversion"?
