Subject: [Moderator Action] more interoperation: Cyberteams Webdav

Today I tested the Cyberteams webdav server.

I regret to say that this web server is far from compliant with RFC 2518.

I found two problems.

1) The server returns an invalid Content-Type for a PROPFIND.  The content
is httpd/unix-directory but should be text/xml

2) The server ignores the Depth header (or at least it ignores Depth: 0) on
As a result, it returns a great deal more information that one desires

There may be other problems, but I was not able to make any progress beyond
this point.  (In principle, my test code should recover from these two
problems but it does not.  I hope to make it more robust, but still both of
these problems are violations of RFC 2518 and should be fixed.)
