Another scoutSubmit.asp question...

What's the best way to add a largish amount of data to a bug that I submit via scoutSubmit.asp? It's textual data so I could simply pour it in via the "Extra" field, but there's a heap of it and I really don't want to clutter up the basic bug details.

Is there a way I can use some kind of multipart HTTP request to submit a file along with my POST'ed bug details?

(This is all hand carved HTTP at the socket level, btw, so it's easy for me to stuff around with HTTP fundamentals.)

Any subsequent posts with same Description will be appended as "Edited by ..." sections. You could put up the first post nice and clean and short, then a second one with the long gory details.

Does that mean that I *cannot* submit file attachments via scoutSubmit.asp?

Yup, that's correct, you cannot.

OK. Can you add this to your "enhancements to be considered one day" list? It would be really nice to be able to do this.
