Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-187) TFTP Server for commons net
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 22:19:46 GMT


Rory Winston commented on NET-187:

Hi guys

Thanks for all of your comments. There is a very good point here, in that including server
code is beyond the stated remit of the project, and including it may just end up being confusing.
Having said that, here is why I decided to include it:

1. It is a pretty simple and small implementation, that doesnt create any extra dependencies
or have any effect on existing code.
2. I liked the contribution (thanks Dan) and did want to make use of it, but I couldnt think
of a good alternative home for it outside [net]. I also thought it may be too much work to
set up a separate project for basically a one-class contribution.
3. As somebody pointed out earlier, I don't want to start advertising [net] as server code
implementations suddenly. I have enough problems keeping up with the client part :-). But
this small addition may help to keep the TFTP client codebase reliable, as we've had some
issues with it in the past.

James  (and others) have suggested moving the TFTPServer code to the test src tree. I think
this is A Fine Idea, as having it in our source tree implies that it is a test dependency
(which it is right now), and thus we can still be seen to be staying within the bounds of
the project scope. If no-one has any objections, that's what I'll do (as soon as I sort out
my SVN client props - sorry Niall :) ).

Thanks for all of the interest and discussion around this - it really shows that you guys
have a real commitment to quality. Many thanks to Sebb and Niall for all of their help with
the release stuff so far.
