Donovan, I've never actually used SSI myself so I need to ask. If I
could send a plain text file to a certain part of the web site, could SSI
include the file to a page template? Or would I need to use some markup
in the body of the file?

What I'm after is, lets say we start including pages on the site that
mark the progress of current Indy projects. For example the Indialer
project I am currently working on. I am fairly fluent in HTML and
editing and maintaining my own pages would not be a problem, but if I
could just upload a plain text log of the progress of the project to a
designated area of the site that requires no SSH or other encryption,
a script like Roger's could include my file into the site and would
make it very easy for any maintainers of certain Indy projects to post
progress reports.

I think it would be a good idea to add project pages to the site. It
would keep the information flowing and possibly attract other
programmers and others passing by to contribute to the Indy project. It
would also let others know that Independence is active and provide a
look into what to possibly expect in the future releases of Indy.

What do you think? Give me a page and I'll write up a progress report
and upload it to whichever directory I'm told. I could even automate
the process on my end.
