#379 closed design (wontfix)

remove no-transform directive from cache-control

Description

AFAIK, no implementation of the no-transform directive exists.

It is misplaced -- it doesn't have anything to do with caching, but rather pretends to control transforming proxies, which of course ignore it because they aren't transforming within the cache mechanism.

It creates unnecessary dependencies between p1 and p6.

Please, can we just kill it?

It's referenced by (at least) <http://www.w3.org/TR/ct-guidelines/>.

I agree its placement is unfortunate, but I don't think we can just get rid of it because it's editorially inconvenient.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

never mind, it just sucks that I found an implementation.
