Relation of HTTP PUT to GET, and whether client headersto server are authoritative

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Raised by:
Tim Berners-Lee
Opened on:
2003-05-06
Description:
Some scenarios that this issue concerns:

Client PUTs representation to server without content type information; what is proper server behavior?

Client PUTs representation to server with content type information, but server ignores. Is this architecturally incorrect?

Client PUTs representation to server with detectably inconsistent content type information. What is proper server behavior (e.g., signal error and not silently ignoring)?
