Subject [code] integration of library serf (incl. apr and apr-util)
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2012 11:55:18 GMT

Andre, Armin and myself are currently working on the integration of library serf 
(incl. libraries apr and apr-util) as a replacement for removed library neon - 
see issue 118569 (

The main integration work is done. You can expect the first version of the 
integration to be commited this week.

The following tasks are not yet completed:
- implementation of the support for WebDAV methods LOCK and UNLOCK.
- SSL certificate validation is not in the same status as it was, when neon was 
used due to a different handling inside library serf. Please see the 
corresponding discussion thread on the serf development mailing list -
- certain improvement work regarding error handling in order to provide 
corresponding feedback to the user. In the current integration code the error 
messages for the user will not contain valuable information about the reason for 
an error - e.g. when a certain host can not be reached or a certain resource is 
not existing.

Before I will commit the code, we will do some further (developer) testing on 
the major platforms (MacOS X, Linux and Windows).

Best regards, Oliver.
