Gabriel (1&1)

  • Issue: Collabora Online not sending close (it closes by in the response does not send close)
    • Our proxy fails. Idea: adding close to the connection header
    • Kendy: Please ping Ashod (via email) if necessary
      • but not necessary ATM it seems
    • Gabriel: took a closer look but still didn’t push
      • Still some cases to go over
      • How will client react when close http header is sent
      • PR: Probably will be sent today
      • Michael: Needs to be tested with our http proxy
        • ./wsd/ProxyProtocol.hpp, ./wsd/ProxyProtocol.cpp – worth checking.
    • Maybe someone else from our side will start to contribute :slight_smile: on the front-end
    • add 'Connection: close' header to http responses. by gmasei11 · Pull Request #5225 · CollaboraOnline/online · GitHub
      • Discussed during COOL Days, approved and merged
      • Ash: “Let’s get it in and improve the headerOnly as a follow up.”
    • We plan to release mini upgrade today
    • wsd: add lang param to conversion #5359 → waiting for review (Ash) (goal is to enforce that lang param)
      • affects date type cells (default locale) → seems awesome.
      • AI (Pedro) : update SDK docs to add &lang=fr-FR or whatever.
