Description (last modified by daira)

There is support for HTTP ETags on immutable files in the current webapi code , although it isn't entirely clear that this is working as intended (see #443). However ETags are not supported for mutable files or directories. According to #443, the ETag for a mutable file/directory should be set to the current roothash value.

If you like this ticket, you might also like #413 (mutable files: expose version info to HTTP clients?).
