Right - but I'm still not sure how you anticipate passing in those URL  
formats - I seem to have missed this from the original proposal. If  
you are doing a release, which only uses the devCon as you said, where  
do you specify both the fetch and push URLs if you only have the devCon?

Yes, that's correct, and it is limited. I am sure the model needs to  
be enriched for dSCMs.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here...
