Subject Re: possible patch for FTP task
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2004 21:28:22 GMT

I suggest you create a bugzilla report ( concerning this, and you attach your 
patch there.
I am not sure however whether this problem should best be handled in the 
ant task or in commons-net.

I hope that Steve Cohen will see these postings.
