Re: [opensuse-buildservice] special hack for handing off remote source requests to ajax server

Uh, I don't think this is legal. Either it's chunked or the
content length must be known. Otherwise keepalive connections
could not work.

The receiving OBS cannot deal with that situation.

Thus my question is, why was this special handling introduced and what
would be the consequences if I disabled that? Is this just a
performance downgrade or would that also have an impact on

Removing the commit would mean that (slow) downloads use a
slot in the server for a long time. There's a only a fixed number
available, thus you may run into a non-responsive server.
