The public_url for AWS uses the path style, which generates url like this:

I have a bucket located in the ap-northeast-1 region (Tokyo). When visiting the public url, AWS returns an XML error document:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    <Message>The bucket you are attempting to access must be addressed using the specified endpoint. Please send all future requests to this endpoint.</Message>

And here's curl results of both the subdomain style and path style urls:

$ curl -I
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
x-amz-id-2: YP55YHqTsYOfW8glu2fM7e+UOO7CH4EC1/vG6yAvyXF26DmaiqtEWoDvXc0bcLBs

The path style url returns 301 without a Location value.

Note: bucketname is not the actual bucket name in use.

For a bucket not in the US Standard region, it seems we have to use the subdomain style.

That is unfortunate, I guess this means that buckets outside US Standard that have subdomain-incompatible names are just not accessible from public urls? That would be unfortunate. In any event I have some logic we can add in from fog that will figure out whether something is subdomain compatible and use that if it can. I'll work on integrating that presently. Thanks for the detailed bug report, makes getting it fixed much, much easier.
