Description

According to RFC2616, HTTP/1.1 servers SHOULD send Last-Modified whenever feasible.
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.29

Apache appears to send this header for static files even when responding to a range request.

In the absence of this header, services like CoBlitz can not make good decisions about how long to cache the partial responses.

An example command to test for this output:


$ curl -I -H 'Range: bytes=1-2' http://lighttpd.net/download/lighttpd-1.3.13.tar.gz
HTTP/1.1 206 Partial Content
Date: Fri, 06 May 2005 17:29:59 GMT
Content-Length: 2
ETag: 1443640654
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Type: application/x-tgz
Content-Range: bytes 1-2/680068
Server: lighttpd/1.3.13
