Subject [PATCH] HttpClient HEAD dependencies
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2004 12:50:02 GMT
Hi there,

In the past HttpClient project has been often called Gump unfriendly. Having
a little bit of spare time on my hands and intent on changing this perception
I would like to consult with you, guys, before we introduce a new dependency
for the development (post 2.0) version of HttpClient and upset quite a few
folks by causing Gump breakage. As of next version HttpClient will be dependent
on Commons-Codec. I am about to commit a patch that uses Commons-Codec classes
to the CVS HEAD. Thus I am kindly asking you to update Gump project definitions
in order to avoid unnecessary Gump nightly builds breakage and to prevent
a new wave of condemnations for Gump unfriendliness.

I would also like to have log4j dependency removed (for both 2.0 and HEAD),
as in fact HttpClient no longer requires this library. 

I attach a patch which _may_ already provide necessary changes to the project
definitions. However, being fundamentally Gump illiterate I am not sure if
the patch is sufficient or correct at all.

If there's anything else you would like us to do to make HttpClient play
with Gump better, just let me know
