Description

It's worth noting that the bbFTP mailing list shows no signs of activity -- the last post was in January 2006. The project may not be very active.

Is this a problem for NDG2?

  • Owner changed from lawrence to spascoe

Bryan's opinion is that this denotes stability.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Use of bbFTP for NDG has been suspended.

For the record, My opinion is that the innactivity denotes lack of use and that operating systems have moved on since bbFTP was developed (e.g. window size adjustment is part of Linux, although difficult to configure). bbFTP's multi-stream feature is still useful but could be acheived in other ways.
