Description Dan Winship 2008-03-26 15:59:28 UTC
we need an API to "make easy tasks easy" as they say.

something like evolution-data-server/servers/exchange/lib/e2k-context.c
(except just for plain HTTP, not WebDAV, at least at first).

soup_simple_get(), soup_simple_get_async(), soup_simple_get_with_progress_callback(), etc.

James Henstridge's old "HttpResource" ( is another idea, for periodically monitoring a changing resource.

is this really a blocker for GNOME 2.24 that definitely needs to be fixed for .0, or is this more like an enhancement? if the latter, please don't set the gnome target milestone.
