Subject RE: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2008 17:03:05 GMT
Hello Jeffrey,

many thanks for offering help!
Are you a Commons Net committer?

For me it looks like there is two tasks for releasing 
commons net 1.4.2:

(a) Look through JIRA to see if there are any more
    fixes outstanding or worth backporting. I'm not
    100% sure but it could be that there is still an
    issue with the Telnet Stream leading to occasional
    reliabiliaty problems with FTP. For reference, see
    https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=219792#c2
    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-145

(b) Take the current commons net 1.4.x branch, make
    sure that all Legal files are correct, automated
    testing runs OK and make a release.

It would be awsome to get a truly reliable FTP client
from Commons Net 1.4.2 -- for us, having the patches
NET-3 and NET-73 was very important already, but
having our own patched version is not as good as 
having an officially released version.

Thanks!
