Yes, that's correct. Neon only grew partial HTTPv2 support, mostly for the
read operations, but definitely *not* for commits. If switching to POST
will fix this, then maybe that's the least invasive approach -- you (or
someone) simply needs to get Neon doing HTTPv2 for commit stuffs.

Another option (and I've not researched this, so it might be bogus) is to
look into the target of that problematic PROPFIND. I mean, is the default
VCC the only resource that can answer the query? If not, could perhaps some
obviously-commit-related resource answer it (something in the activity,
perhaps)? Do you happen to know exactly what is being asked for in that
