Strong etagging vs Nginx...by
Hi all, I've recently found that when activating Nginx's gzip while proxing OpenERP, etags of JS and CSS were being removed. The issue is that Nginx changing the octets being transmitted over the wire invalidates the strong etag, cause as per RFC 2616: A "strong entity tag" MAY be shared by two entities of a resource only if they are equivalent by octet equality. Would you consider changing the addon/web/controllers/main.py to set a weak etag instead of a strong one? What would be the implications? Would you consider introduce this change by providing a configuration option that'd turn on/off this behaviour? Best regards, Manuel.
