Hi Phillip!

Im aware of the limitation concering URL to URL copies and I actually
constructed the example in my fomer message to test the same thing for
URL->WC copies. I was just missing your comment "( or from a repos other
than the one the wc is from )" in the documentation. Thanks for
clarifying this. Personally, I think if the parameters are invalid the
client should return an error message instead of checking out a new WC.
CU,
Gunther
