Hi Rico, Can you provide the specific GET request URL with which you encountered this problem? There are very few GET requests when installing repositories from the tool shed - the only one I can locate without a lot of digging is the following, which I don't think is causing the problem.
# Get the information necessary to install each repository. url = suc.url_join( tool_shed_url, 'repository/get_repository_information?repository_ids=%s&changeset_revisions=%s' % \ ( repository_ids, changeset_revisions ) ) Thanks, Greg Von Kuster On Sep 13, 2013, at 10:59 AM, Richard Burhans <r...@bx.psu.edu> wrote: > Folks, > > After checking a little closer last night, I have one clarification. > The Tool Shed does use POSTs as well as GETs, but even when it's > POSTing, the encoded dictionaries (encoded_repo_info_dicts) are part > of the query string.
