Right, I was just confirming that.
I think this is approaching off-topic for this thread. The server (mod_dav_svn) currently does respond to HEAD requests without Content-Length, which appears to be invalid. Perhaps a separate issue/thread should discuss whether the HEAD response should be changed to conform with the specification.
On-topic, looking at the HTTP RFC, the HEAD request makes a lot of sense for access control purposes and that gives the server a chance to optimize the response even if, worst case, only the response bandwidth would be gained.
