Subject Supporting the file protocol for the "upload" task?
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2008 18:30:43 GMT
Hi all,

The site claims that buildr only uses  the SFTP protocol for uploads:

However I tested out the file protocol and it seems to work fine.
This would be useful for servers (like a continuous integration
server) that may have direct access to the file structure for the
repository.  Is there any reason not to support the file protocol?

If it seems like a good option, you could patch the documentation with
something like the diff below.
