           Summary: Support preemptive authentication
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Akonadi
           Version: 1.11.0
          Platform: unspecified
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: DAV Resource
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org

It would be great if Akonadi/DAV would support preemptive authentication, as
that will speed up syncs with the WebDAV server.

RFC 2617 Section 2: A client MAY preemptively send the corresponding
Authorization header with requests for resources in that space without receipt
of another challenge from the server.

Several other WebDAV clients (e.g. Android CardDAV-Sync, CalDAV-Sync, DAVdroid)
and Apache's HTTP client library support this.
