Subject [libre] UC-external docs (was RE: [libre] use(full) how and when)
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2002 06:41:50 GMT
As explained elsewhere I'm splitting up the different threads here...
All should join again when we get a better feel of the various needs and how
to combine them in the solution.

[libre] UC-external docs

Don't really feel like I understand fully.

Current libre expects all <entry> @location to point to a relative file.
I don't think it would be that hard to introduce support for http://.... in
but that would always result in an <entry> to be inserted, and never a
<collection> that will  be traversed deeper?
Support like this is in fact what book.xml does already so it's the least we
can do I guess.

what I'm doubting about is to what extend it's not about supporting
http://... but in fact any  by cocoon supported pseudo-protocol?

While this sounds like fun to code :-S the question in fact is how and why
that would be usefull?
