Rana Bhattacharyya commented on FTPSERVER-6:

Hi Sergey,
    I can understand the issue you have. At this moment I am trying to generate developer
interest. So the first thing we have to do is to get the developer attention as much as possible.
In fact this is the reason I have updated the site very recently and sending mails to the
mailing lists so frequently. I also sent a mail to the mailing list to give you the commiter
access but nobody replied. The basic problem is lack of interest. If we can increase the interest
level then everybody has to listen and reply mails. This is also a task we have to do. 

The project activity includes coding, writing doc, testing, infrastructure related activities
and generating developer interest. Infrastructure wise now we have migrated to SVN, we have
our own mailing lists. Generating interest is a very very important task. Unless we have a
big developer and user circle, we will be working in vain.

  Now the question - why I did not apply the file system patch. There are three reasons.

1. As you know all of us work whenever we have some free time. I was busy in my office work
for the last two weeks. In fact I doubt whether I can do any development work in this month.
Commiting patch will take 10 mins ..... but as this will be a major commit, first we have
to discuss about it.

2. Sometime I think the patch will be useful and sometime I think we will loose the server
API simplicity and unnecessarily we will introduce FTPLET API complexity. So we need to discuss
it before this commit. Hopefully next week I should be able to send you a detailed mail about
my confusion. So then we will have a healthy discussion and decide what to do.

3. It will be great if you can directly commit files but for this we have to gain some momentum.
This is what I am doing now. If we increase the mailing list activity then our mails will
not be ignored. Then we can introduce other commiters and move out of incubation. 

I hope you will understand this.

somebody, who want to do something with CVS.
