It might say something to the effect that the Method implementations are
intended to be used with HttpClient, but there is absolutely no information
in the api as to how to do simple things.  At least there should be
something on the wiki.  The webdav wiki entry is severely lacking useful

Im thinking examples on how to list the contents of a repo, how to put a
file in the repo using webdav client, etc.

Yes they are defined by the RFC, but going to the RFC to figure out simple
things makes using this api prohibitive.  There is nothing useful revealed
by google, and even searching for slide examples isn't useful because the
client api has changed.
