Description Joe Orton 2002-09-04 06:58:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
Entering a DAV-enabled URL in the location bar does not present (or allow
switching to) a WebDAV view of the URL, but simply does a GET on the location
and the response displays the response as text.  I thought previously Nautilus
would give a DAV view by default; at least, it would at least allow changing to
"View as Icons" to give the DAV folder listing. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Nautilus
2. Enter http://test.webdav.org/dav/

Actual Results:
No WebDAV view given or available

Expected Results:
WebDAV folder view.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-09-04 09:25:11 EDT
it's indeed supposed to work.
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-09-04 10:37:35 EDT
That address doesn't work for me either, but http://idisk.mac.com/tigert/Public
does, and so does http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn. Don't know what is causing
the first one to fail, but i don't know much about webdav.

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2002-09-05 12:05:37 EDT
The problem with http://test.webdav.org/dav/ is that the trailing slash from the
URL is getting stripped in the PROPFIND request made by gnome-vfs, which is not
correct; a PROPFIND request on a collection (aka folder) should always have a
trailing slash in the request-uri.

The PROPFIND on http://test.webdav.org/dav gets a 30x redirect to /dav/; the
redirect is followed, but with a GET request.

(Some servers respond to the PROPFIND-without-trailing-slash fine, though)

I filed this bug upstream:

Defering this bug until it's fixed upstream.
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2004-03-04 10:05:40 EST
Fixed upstream now. Will be in the next version.
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2004-03-04 10:06:45 EST
I'm closing this now so i won't forget it, but it'll be fixed when
gnome-vfs2 2.5.9 builds.
