	It looked like gallery2-remote was obsoleted by gallery2-2.3-1 and the
file was there:

rpm -qf /usr/share/gallery2/modules/remote/ItemAddGalleryRemote.inc

	Now it's gone from 2.3-7 and later.  Not fixed with the Smarty fix
that's in 2.3-11 that's in Koji.  This sucks.  I can't even add local
items, I immediately get an "invalid path" error that this file is not
found.  Filing a bugzilla on this one now.

	Looks like it got pulled due to a requirement for "nonredistributable
jars" but it screws me over royally.  As soon as I click on "Add Items
to Album" it blows chunks and I have no idea what to do about it.  I'm
rebuilding the RPM's right now with the "rm -rf remote" commented out.
I don't really use the remote protocol but it sucks getting screwed over
like this by a build "upgrade".

	I can access webdav by connecting to the server under Gnome.  If you
need to use SSL (which I do) it's a little tricky.  I had to add some
helper file, IIRC.  Web search turned up that trick.

	THAT's putting it mildly.
