When editing articles in wikipedia, i end up coming to an error page.

After reffering to the #wikimedia-tech Freenode channel, a kind user called JeLuf analysed a packet dump (i'll post here if requested) and linked me to this article and bug #6586.

He also mentioned that "(WebPositive) sends a request that ends in "Expect: 100-continue", and (Wikipedia's) squid answers with "HTTP/1.0 417 Expectation failed"

Just for info: This is almost definitely guaranteed to be a cURL problem, or a problem in how the WebCore cURL network backend is written. I've already fixed one bug with regards to the problem that the WebCore cURL backend was targetting a much older version of the cURL API and we use a current version of cURL.

(In #6586) Replying to humdinger:

Since I comment and attach files to tickets here on Trac all the time... is this still valid?

I don't have access to that network anymore, but it sounds like the very recently reported #6848. Closing this one as a duplicate.

Resolution: fixed

Should be fixed now. The new network backend won't send this header anymore.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
