      Description

      Currently POSTing new job creates it, but it's not possible to update configuration (config.xml). That would eliminate any needed changes through UI.

          This is probably an old issue.
          As far as I can tell you can update an issue by posting to /job/

          {jobname}

          /config.xml with the config.xml int the body.

          There still is a problem: when you GET the job config and then POST it back you would expect it to be a no-op =>

          curl http://myjenkins/job/myjob/config.xml -o myjob-config.xml
          curl -XPOST http://myjenkins/job/myjob/config.xml -d @myjob-config.xml

          However this operation strips newlines, breaking shell steps:
          <hudson.tasks.Shell>
          <command>echo "one"
          echo "two"
          echo "three"</command>
          </hudson.tasks.Shell>

          becomes

          <hudson.tasks.Shell> <command>echo oneecho twoecho three</command> </hudson.tasks.Shell>

          (in fact the entire config.xml ends up on a single line).
