Description scu.bjwu 2018-05-03 02:50:41 UTC
In function dav_fs_get_parent_resource(), all the return values are NULL.
However, it seems like this if-condition below indicates an error path:

if ((tv != APR_SUCESS && rv != APR_ERELATIVE) || !testpath || !*testpah) {
    *result_parent = NULL;
    return NULL;

Should we return some value (dav_error) to indicate this situation?

The comment before this test is:
> /* If given resource is root, then there is no parent.
>  * Unless we can retrieve the filepath root, this is
>  * intendend to fail.  If we split the root and
>  * no path info remains, then we also fail.
>  */

I don't know this part of the code well enough, but the comment looks in line with the code.

Why do you think an error should be returned? Can you elaborate?
