some time ago we started using our own P2 Sites to distribute our binaries, and thats behind a artifact management system called Artifactory. We found P2 had problems on resolving HTTP URLs containg credentials. You may find more information on the original post:
So we concluded the HttpClient implementation of ECF does not support fetching credentials from the URL and passing it to the server.
The issue found at:
fixed the correct parsing of the http://<user>:<pass>@host:port format. But it did not actually implement passing these credentials to the server.
My question here is: is there any reason this feature is not implemented (for example, security reasons, being a non-standard feature...). In case there is no reason, would a contribution be accepted?
