Subject Re: Wagon changes and WebDAV
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2008 10:41:44 GMT
I've taken a look at the code and found two problems:

a) the wagon in core was reverted to beta-1, which is probably the  
root of James' problems. beta-2 corrects the redirects and has been  
stable for some time. I presume this was an accident as it came in  
with Milos toolkits commit. Milos - was this intentional?

b) the extension manager isn't loading extensions if they are in the  
core (though it should). I have found a fix for that - I am just  
working on an integration test first. This allow you to specify the  
version you want, removing the auto-upgrade issue Brian highlighted.
