Subject [HttpClient] when to HTTP/1.0 fallback
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2002 10:42:03 GMT
HttpMethod base currently sets http11 when it parses the response line.

So when the request is repeated (due to redirection or authentication) 
the protcol version may change. Is this behaviour actually correct?

The client should of course provide sort of automatic fallback to 1.0 if 
the server does not support 1.1. But for instance in case of a 1.1 
request and a 1.0 redirection response, shouldn't the client repeat the 
request in its original form anyway?

I just ask because I see this behaviour when testing against the Squid
