Re: SEUL: Uploading...

Whoa guys, why don't we just use FTP? Yeah, I know that it isn't as
secure as other things but how far do we need to go to transfer files -
if everyone else is using ssh to check in and out web pages (so that we
can enforce the use of ssh to protect the repository), is ftp'ing the
data to/fro going to compromise the site? Just my $0.01567.
