If you mean the mod_dav "DAVDepthInfinity" configuration flag here, this applies
- as far as I know - to all PROPFIND Depth infinity requests, not only to
PROPFIND ALLPROP Depth infinity. So, if this flag is set to "off" (the default
value), the client is not allowed to send a PROPFIND PROP Depth infinity.

Greg, will this change in future releases of mod_dav? So, will the
"DAVDepthInfinity" configuration only apply to ALLPROP?

Best, Hartmut
