Hi Raymond,

1) Correct it is on his private fork in order to see if it works, without
possibly breaking the nightly build.
   So what you need to do is get the following file:

   You can probably use 'wget' to get the file or save it in your browser
and ftp it to your server whichever method works for you. Put that file in
place of the lib/Vend/Server.pm you are having currently and restart

   After that please let us know if that solves your problems.

2) Please change your e-mail format to 'Plain text', instead of
multipart/alternative (ie HTML and Text). The mailinglist application puts
your e-mails automatically in moderation, which delays delivery of your
e-mails to the list for some time. To get your messages posted directly make
sure they are plain text. This is probably a on/off switch in your e-mail

3) Common etiquette is to not 'top post' your replies. Some people are
neurotic about this and will refuse to read further. You can think 'that's
stupid' .. maybe so, but it does reduce the number of responses, so I
suggest you put your responses to the bottom of the message in the future :)
