Description Jesse Glick 2001-07-25 16:43:31 UTC
Currently the contents of the Modules/ folder in the system file system are read
at startup for the initially loaded modules, and changes in the module manager
are written to this folder as well. But changes in it from other sources
(additions, removals, changes of content such as the enablement status of a
module) are not listened to. They should be, as this would be needed e.g. for
full session support and possibly for autoupdate as well.

Starting but not clear if I will be able to finish this for feature
freeze, beware.

Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2001-08-19 13:14:13 UTC
Implemented, please check Modules API for docs and try it. Especially
I am looking for feedback on how well it works with session support;
probably future unit tests should simulate adding a session layer.

Rollback info: comment out "folder.addFileChangeListener(...)" in
