Added FtpServer report

  === FtpServer ===
+ Description: FtpServer is a Java based implementation of the RFC covering different aspects
of FTP.
+ Since the last board report, the main activity within FtpServer has been a rather large
rewrite to create an Apache MINA based network implementation. The aim with this is to leverage
the asynchronous IO library to get better scalability. The initial performance tests shows
that this has been successful and that FtpServer now can handle significant loads. Besides
this major work, many minor issues has been closed, mostly based on feedback from users.
+ As reported previously, FtpServer has very few active commiters. Currently, there is only
one. This is, for many reasons a big problem and one that we need to resolve. A discussion
was started on general@i.a.o ton address this. Among many good ideas, one was to seek closer
cooperation with Tomcat and write a FTP connector for Tomcat. This is something we will pursue
both based on technical (Tomcat is a very stable runtime to base FtpServer on) and community
merits. With this, we hope to possibly attract Tomcat developers into the joys of FTP.
+ We also need to reach out using articles, blog posts and talks. No significant progress
has been made in this area since the last report.
