Fyi, org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.net has a dependency on org.apache.commons.httpclient (3.1.0) from Orbit. It’s redistributed in all package downloads other than Classic. It provides all of the additional facilities we found useful for making HttpClient connections from Eclipse to repositories like Bugzilla (e.g., proxy configuration, user agent setting that lists the eclipse.product that’s running, connection monitoring and cancellation support, and filling other gaps in httpclient).
If there’s interest in reuse, just let us know. If not, consider looking over some of that code, since the cancellation support was not that fun to implement and was required for us since we found some httpclient connections to block indefinitely in the presence of flaky network conditions. Here are the relevant bits of the manifest of org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.net:
