Re: Important info about caching

I just have one info regarding CURLINFO_TIMECONDITION. This is rather
trivial but it seems rather important really. Which should be 1 and which
should be 0?
Meaning should it be 1 if 304 is returned (or last-mod check fails)
or should it be 1 otherwise (i.e. complete download)?
It seems using 1 for the latter makes the most sense since we're checking
whether the time condition was met. E.g. "return it to me if it is newer
than 1 day old." Then, file is newer than 1 day old == success (1), file is
older than 1 day == failure (0). However this seems kind of counterintuitive
to me. What do you think?
