RFC 4918, "HTTP Extensions for Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV)", June 2007

Errata ID: 4435

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Section 9.8.5 says:


It should say:

The 404 (Not Found) status code indicates that the origin server did
   not find a current representation for the target resource or is not
   willing to disclose that one exists.  A 404 status code does not
   indicate whether this lack of representation is temporary or
   permanent; the 410 (Gone) status code is preferred over 404 if the
   origin server knows, presumably through some configurable means, that
   the condition is likely to be permanent.

   

Notes:

The case of the resource being copied not existing is not covered. I assume that a 404 error is appropriate, but that is my assumption.
