[maxq-dev] Anyone working on fixing the follow redirects?

Message Currently the follow redirects are not recorded and are disabled at
runtime. This causes a serious limitation for us, because, unless certain
URLs are accessed, the resources on the server are not created, so the
subsequent requests on the resource will fail. I would like to get this
fixed, but if someone is already working on it, I would like to work with
them to avoid duplicating the effort.

Also I am not very much sure why recording of redirects was disabled. I
think I saw somewhere in the code a FIXME with an explicit disable of
this. All I can think of was that the old HTTPClient library didn't
provide control to the programmer on how the redirects should be handled,
so recording them resulted in duplicate requests and even worse, incorrect
status codes. If commons HttpClient has better control on handling
redirects, is it not easy enough to enable this part of the code again? I
will be very much interested to here any thoughts from those who knew the
original problem and has ideas on how to get it working with the new
library.

I think this change will break the old scripts, so we will probably have
to encode this information in the script (like an explicit call to enable
the feature).

Thank you,
Hari
