[Nautilus-list] [dav-announce] neon HTTP/WebDAV client library (fwd)

Hi all,

I'm forwarding this announcement from Joe... I think that it would help
with Ian's work on creating a WebDAV VFS for GNOME. You could shift a
*ton* of coding effort off to the neon library.

Note that, despite its 0.1.0 version, neon is very old and stable code.
This library is extracted from the "sitecopy" and "cadaver" tools that Joe
has written. The WebDAV support in sitecopy is almost 18 months old. Even
if there are a couple gotchas, it should go a long ways towards some
serious WebDAV support.


p.s. WebDAV info at http://www.webdav.org/,
     sitecopy is at http://www.lyra.org/sitecopy/, and
     cadaver is at http://www.webdav.org/cadaver/
