Hi,

For the LABEL method RFC 3253 says:

"If a Depth header is included and the request fails
on any resource, the response MUST be a 207 Multi-Status
that identifies all resources for which the request has
failed."

For the COPY method RFC 2518 says:

"If an error in executing the COPY method occurs with a
resource other than the resource identified in the
Request-URI then the response MUST be a 207 (Multi-Status)."

This seems to be inconsistent. Contrary to the LABEL method,
the COPY would not return a Multi-Status if the Request-URI
is the only one with an error or when the Depth header is "0",
in which case there can't be another resource with an error.

Regards,

Werner.
