#8504: Incorrect CURL options set in HTTP API

 Priority:  normal     |   Milestone:  2.7                
Component:  General    |     Version:  2.7                
 Severity:  normal     |    Keywords:  HTTP API, has-patch
 When making a HEAD request in the HTTP API via CURL the full body is
 fetched, it should only fetch the head. The attached patch conditionally
 sets CURLOPT_NOBODY to true.

 Also the CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER setting is set conditionally then set back
 to "1" regardless. The attached patch assumes the conditional is doing the
 right thing.

 These changes have been part of BackPress for a while now.
