We sometimes need esoteric server/backend configuration for XHR tests - those that currently live here:



http://w3c-test.org/webapps/XMLHttpRequest/tests/submissions/

Some of the corner case tests need the server to behave in peculiar ways. If the server doesn't respond the way the test needs, it makes checking and reviewing the test suite a lot more time consuming. For example, currently the server seems to simply reject PUT or DELETE queries with a "method not allowed" error - this prevents testing how the XHR implementation handles these and causes bogus failures in tests like http://w3c-test.org/webapps/XMLHttpRequest/tests/submissions/Opera/open-method-case-insensitive.htm 


How can we request the config changes we need?
