v1 v2 7 7 This leaves us with Carl's idea of "cache anything that doesn't have Vary: Cookie" — but is it even useful? 8 8 9 Caching is hard! 9 1) Very few websites will match this requirement. Most websites indicate when a user is logged in. Many show a login form on every page for anonymous users, making anonymous pages depend on the cookie (because of the CSRF token). 10 11 2) Since it's purely HTTP-level, it could be done by a caching reverse proxy. For instance, Varnish seems [https://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/3.0/tutorial/cookies.html way more capable] of dealing with this than Django. 12 13 ---- 14 15 So, I'm +1 for deprecating this feature.
