netrw.vim v47g is now released on my website as
as "Network Oriented Reading and Writing".
This is a request for help with testing and suggestions.
There's a lot of remote directory/file exploring (see :help netrw-browse):
Typical usage: vim url://[user@]host/path/ (note that trailing slash!!!)
? Causes Netrw to issue help
<cr> Netrw will enter the directory or read the file
<del> Netrw will attempt to remove the file/directory
<c-l> Causes Netrw to refresh the directory listing
D Netrw will attempt to remove the file(s)/directory(ies)
R Netrw will attempt to rename the file(s)/directory(ies)
- Makes Netrw go up one directory
a Show all of a directory (temporarily ignore g:netrw_list_hide)
h Edit file hiding list
o Enter the file/directory under the cursor in a new browser

There's some changes in the dav/cadaver code handling. Since I don't have
apache installed on my RH8 system, I don't have cadaver working. Thus
I'm dependent on users to let me know when/where there are problems. Its
working well for one user, but I don't think he's a "Zope" user. Please
out the cadaver (dav://hostname/path) and let me know how it works. On
the off chance that its actually working I'd like to know that, too!
