[owncloud-devel] Problems with Chunked upload

I just took a look at the owncloud client and first impression: There are a lot of things done which are never mentioned before. However my client still does not work. But I have some questions you hopefully can answer :)

1. etag

The specs (https://github.com/owncloud/core/wiki/spec:-big-file-chunking) mentions etags at the end. With each response of a chunk I get a new etag. The client checks for that (https://github.com/owncloud/client/blob/master/src%2Flibsync%2Fpropagateupload.cpp#L439) but this did not work for me so far. So my question. Is it a bad thing that I get etags returned and do I need If-Match in my header?


I saw some clients using X-OC-MTIME as header. What does this header mean?

3. Checksum

The owncloud client also adds a checksum to the last request. Is this necessary? If yes how do I calculate that?
