the other ones.

For easy use of FTP, I actually recommend FireFTP extension right in
Firefox for most of my users. It's easy to use and handles just about
all of the FTP configurable needs the average joe needs.

Of course, we don't package FF plugins, so that's moot for this
discussion, I guess.

We could of course package FF plugins if they are an important part of
the distribution. The extension handling of FF with AMO and automatic
updates and so on makes it usually not useful to have them in RPM form.


I agree, I don't think we should include it in our package, because it
just opens up a big can of worms. It's easy enough to install these
plug-ins with one click directly from FireFox's website.

I was just merely pointing out an alternative FTP client that exists
without our need to package additional beyond Nautilus.
