I'm fairly new to using Pentavo, having only downloaded the demo, integrated a custom Jasper report, and browsed through the source and documentation.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but It strikes me as a limitation that the pentaho-solutions repository must be a directory on the local filesystem. It would be much more flexible if a Pentavo solutions repository could be specified as a URL. This would allow the use of "file://" URL's access local repositories, and "http://" or "https://" to access remote solutions repositories.

If this capability were added, you could store the solutions in a remote Subversion or other WebDAV-enabled repository. These provide versioning and attribution of changes, which would be crucial in a corporate, multi-project Pentavo setup.

Any thoughts?
