Description Patrick Ohly 2013-04-24 10:49:02 UTC
A WebDAV server is allowed to modify items during a PUT, in which case it won't return an eTag. SyncEvolution should treat the missing eTag as "server has updated data" and import that changed item in a second cycle.

This can be made more efficient with the prefer=return-representation header.
Comment 1 Patrick Ohly 2014-04-17 14:45:25 UTC
See also the behavior of the Apple Calendar server in Client::Sync::eds_contact::testOneWayFromLocal: it returns an etag in the response to POST, but then later seems to update the item (property reordering) and updates the etag.
