Thanks for the information on the HttpComponenets project. I was not
aware of the plans there to include WebDAV. I think this would be the
most logical place to put the new WebDAV client as there is already a
lot of interest to do so.

This makes sense. I think this was a good move as it makes people
aware of the state of the Slide project. It seems as though many other
projects out there are using Slide as a WebDAV client. Hopefully the
retirement of slide will spur interest in a new WebDAV client project.

Thanks for the clarification
