First of all I want to make a release of the WebDAV Client for WinAos. Should be
a problem of a couple of hours. But I didn't have a single hour for Oberon
programming this weekend so this is still todo.
Monday to Wednesday evenings I also aready have non Oberon stuff to do.
This said some comments concerning a NO WebDAV client:
AosIO is heavily used. So it would be nice if it is available.
XML also is a necessity.
So if I get AosIO and XML for NO I would give it a try to port the client
to NO. I can't say yet whether there will be additional problems but these were
the first to surface so they must be solved. I hope then most of the work
is done.

Regards, Edgar
