Ah thanks for that - I failed to find the github project for redbot - otherwise probably would of posted this there. Have tried the Google Group - but its held for moderation. And GGroups has a known issue that group owners arent notified of pending messages :(

that is pretty much the question. But redbot suggests otherwise - which is what I am questioning. It seems the thinking is caches will update the headers of the 'stored' object with those in the 304 - and as the last modified is now missing, it will be lost from the cached object. -- I supose some testing is needed :) - its worth noting I've never observed any issue with 304s not including the header - 304s continue to be issued for the same object - its just that the advice of redbot suggets otherwise.
