Mismatch Vary

Reported by: mnot@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 15
Component: p6-cache Severity: Active WG Document
Keywords: Cc:

Description

When one cached variant has one Vary header, and then another variant is received with a different Vary header. Lets say the first has

Vary: Accept-Language

and the second

Vary: Accept-Encoding

what is the appropriate behaviour for a cache?

Responses are evaluated in isolation; spec does not need to say anything (worst effect is lowered cache efficiency). HNO requests close with no action.

If multiple selected responses are available, the most recent response (as determined by the Date header field) is used (see [section 2.2]).
