Subject Re: FTPServer one more time
Date Fri, 30 Dec 2005 06:02:20 GMT

    I think it is now my time to break the silence. It
is true that the FTPServer immediately needs proper
mentoring. At this point there are only two commiters
(myself and Paul). Few months ago I tried to add few
other commiters. But due to lack of mentoring effort,
it failed. As there are only two commiters, we cannot
vote to add other commiters. So my hands are tied. 

  The project is in Incubator for the last 2/3 years.
But without new commiters, it is not going anywhere.
Whenever I have time, I tried to do something. I think
we should move to some other place where the project
will be more dynamic. The situation is very
frustrating for me as well as for other contributors.
