Do you know servers that really get this right?
I am asking because I once tried to implement setting MIME-type in
davfs2 (using PROPPATCH). I did my first tests with
Apache/mod_dav/mod_dav_fs and IIS and then immediately stopped work on
this. What I got is:
PROPFIND returned the MIME-type as set by davfs2
GET and HEAD returned another MIME-type, the one derived from the file
