Re: [gftp] Status of development?
Here's my $0.02 from another gFTP user:
I feel that gftp holds a very important position not only as an ftp
program, but on a much larger scale as well: as far as I could find,
gftp is the only GPL ftp program of its kind still in development for
gnome (yeah, I SUPPOSE you could use Kbear or Kasablanca, but that would
also require installing 101 KDE libraries [no thanks]).
I agree 100% there.
I'd like to start going through the gftp source and see if I can't patch
some of the bugs I run into -in an effort to keep things rolling.
Hopefully when you're ready to continue serious development, I'll be
able to hand you a few patches and save you some time --effectively (I
hope) speeding up the release date of the new version.
That would be great as far as I'm concerned. I posted this half a year ago:
[gftp] unanswered bug reports and RFEs:
My biggest issues are the permissions bug that prevents you from reading
files unless you have write-access to them, and the fact that gFTP transfers
much slower than other programs (the scp command, etc), over the exact same
connection. (These both have been reported multiple times.)
