Hi Robie,

The specific need is that www.jujucharms.com uses apache2 as a reverse proxy to charmstore. The upload of resources and charms is suboptimal without 100-continue support. While investigating adding 100-continue support, we ran into this bug. As for a general need for this to be fixed in Ubuntu, I know of none, other than correctly supporting 100-continue in http reverse proxies.

Only Ubuntu users using mod_proxy_http to reverse proxy a service which implements 100-continue are impacted by this problem. There must not be any. I'm honestly surprised that this bug has existed for so long.

I am working with upstream to get this or a similar patch applied. I'll continue doing so.

Thanks,
