Subject RE: Targeted chains - let's punt exposing them
Date Mon, 06 Aug 2001 19:53:56 GMT

I've heard nothing back from anyone on this - silence means assent?

I'm not going to bother changing the code, since WSDD will be getting
plugged in anyway, but as it stands I'm not documenting the <chain
request="" response="" pivot=""/> deployment syntax in the user's guide.
