Item9282: configure Extension repository needs UI and information update

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Urgent Closed Engine    
first up, when it fails to get info from a repo, it doesn't tell the admin whats up
  1. in my specific case, I have a repo that requires auth, but i forgot to add that - so it should tell me that i need to add user&pass

there is a formatting error in the 'Consulted locations' message, where you get something like:

Consulted locations: Foswiki.org", "fosiki 

it looks like i didn't docco the user,pass) params in the docco..

It reports an auth error. How you pass auth depends on the repository. x:y@ in the url is one way. ?username=x;password=y is another.

The template is wrong.

the docco still needs updating, and we should be reporting what the error is when its tmpllogin - where possible. removing the extra quotes is not in addressing the issue I raised (and yes, I was working on this)
