Paul, I have bumped this onto the mod_python developers list. Can you send
any further discussion about this to the mailing list.

That said, the status of mod_dav_python is that nothing has been done. Not
even the optional functions to be exported by mod_python:

  http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-165

and which could then be used to implement mod_dav_python have been added.

This is in part because no one expressed any interest in wanting to pursue
the idea of writing mod_dav_python, thus putting in hooks was seen as low
priority.

If you are interested and can find others who would also be interested in
working on a mod_dav_python, then I can certainly put the hooks in, as
certainly still see it as being feasible.

Personally though, beyond giving some rough pointers of how the hooks could
be used, I don't have enough time or knowledge about DAV to be able to help
much in doing the actual work, thus success will depend on whether you can
get others interested.

Graham
