Subject Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2007 17:36:49 GMT
Dear Commons Community,

For our Eclipse project DSDP-TM (for an URL, see
my signature below), we're picking up Commons Net 
1.4.1 in order to provide remote FTP access. This 
is being used in a number of places, including 
transparent management of remote web servers.

We've recently come across a bug where the FTP
connection deadlocks, approximately once out
of 20 uploads:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=202758 

We've been able to track this down to two known
bugs in Commons Net, which have been fixed about
a year ago:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-3
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-73

Without these fixes, our tool is pretty useless
for FTP, and we cannot see a workaround for the
issue. So we really really need the fixes! But 
just picking up the patches is not easily possible
for us, due to IP cleanliness reasons we'd much
prefer a real service release of Commons Net.

Looking at the Release Notes embedded in the recent
nightlies (Commons Net 1.5-Snapshot), it looks like
an 1.4.x service release had been planned at some
point but never actually done.

Would it be possible to have a Commons Net 1.4.2
Service Release? Or what else are the release 
plans for Commons Net?

Thanks a lot for any insight!

Cheers,
--
