Description Chris Webster 2002-08-16 15:59:04 UTC
The api for FileSet in general and the new
ListFileSet must be extended to allow preservation
of broken links (DataObjects which are not
reachable from the project). ListFileSet needs
this capability to explicitly preserve ordering.
Currently, unreachable DataObjects are just
removed from the list. The unreachable DataObjects
should be returned as BrokenLink (improve the
name) which would allow the unreachable url to be
obtained. This may also require documentation or
api changes to the FileSet api to ensure that
unreachable DataObject preserving FileSets may
return broken links (if order preserving).

Jan, it's fixed in new filesets API, right? 
Comment 2 Jan Pokorsky 2002-10-07 09:32:19 UTC
Yes, it is. The new impl. and api of filesets can preserve broken
links and you can obtain them as URLs.
