      Description

      It would be very helpful for using WebDAV to support "friendly" site IDs for DAV URLs, especially for Mac users that cannot rename what the DAV volume is mounted as.

      For example,

      http://sakai.institution.edu/dav/bc83345f-a2ad-4814-8074-e199a9615677/

      would become

      http://sakai.institution.edu/dav/english101a/

      The Mac user would then have a nicely-named volume of "english101a" instead of the less meaningful "bc83345f-a2ad-4814-8074-e199a9615677".

      I recall some patches to the access servlet that did something like this based off of the email archive alias.
