Error handling

Dec 1, 2010 at 1:32 AM

Though error handling is expected to still be a little, it would be helpful if a little more information was returned for common conditions.  e.g. I filed a while back about the case where you try to upload a package that already exists.  The problem is that this same error ("Expecting element 'root' from namespace ''.. Encountered 'None'  with name '', namespace ''") shows up in lots of different scenarios.  e.g. if I try to turn on AuthenticatePackageRequests (which I have not yet tested), I get the same error and I don't know what's wrong.  On my local box, I can debug this, but on our production server with no debugger, it makes it difficult to figure out what's wrong.

Maybe the general scenario is that anytime the Gallery makes a request to the Server and something goes wrong, it gives that error?
