Subject Re: SFTP task
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2007 00:59:03 GMT
Hello Dick,

Atsuhiko Yamanaka has created a bug report with an implementation of  
the sftp task.

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39532

Maybe you can build it yourself and try it.

You can also vote for the bug report.

Best regards,

Antoine
