Subject Re: FTP task incredibly slow when listing files
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 01:50:15 GMT
Hello Jesse,

I did some changes long time ago to the ftp task but do not remember
much about it. I would have to open the source code.

What happens if you do not nest a fileset when doing your <ftp/>
invocation ?
