Wagon and WebDav NTLM authentication

Mykel Alvis-2
Two questions:
Is the webdav wagon still under developement?
The web site for wagon in general seems sketchy, with a lot of broken links
and possibly erroneous information.

I'm working on a patch to allow the webdav wagon to authenticate to an
NTLM-authorized DAV resource.
Am I wasting my time and this is somehow possible with the current webdav
wagon?  I get an error (that I can't remember now that I'm at home) about
cannot use credentials for an NTLM authentication.

I found an article about Slide [1]  and a forum comment [2] about building
an NTCredentials object to use with NTLM but I don't really know how to
distinguish between a need for NTLM credentials and non-NTLM.  Maybe if you
build an NTLM credentials and populate it all properly, that Credentials
will work with non-NTLM auths but I don't know. I'm going to test that
theory tomorrow morning.  Maybe there just needs to be an "ntlmdav" provider

Any additional data would be helpful, since I'm not an expert in wagon, DAV,
or NTLM authentication.
