Description micajc 2003-10-17 22:04:18 UTC
When adding a data source you are not given the option of specifying
what type of data is being retrieved... frequently on the web resources
appear to be of a scripting file type (ie .php or .cgi ) when infact
they may contain html, csv, xls or other data... By allowing the selection
of the type of data to be retrieved at the url you can expand the potential 
data sources.

what you have described is not a bug but maybee a feature request /
Enhancement. I've changed the Issue type and re-assigned it.

Considered for 'Office later'.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
