Description Mike West 2011-07-19 02:47:43 PDT
According to http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/links.html#hyperlink-auditing `<a ping>` should send `Ping-From` HTTP header in addition to a `referer` header when pinging an origin distinct from the initial document (when the initial document wasn't loaded over HTTPS.

Currently, WebKit only sends the referrer header.

I'm not really convinced that the spec is correct here, as the additional header seems completely redundant, but we should probably follow the letter of the spec here. Patch for review in a moment.

Did the spec change?  I was pretty sure that the spec said Ping-From and Referer were mutually exclusive when ping was implemented in WebKit.

I agree that this patch matches the behavior as it's currently specced, though.

Alright, if we agree that this matches the spec, then I'd ask you to throw this into the commit queue for me.
