I blieve there is some software. But we can easily work around that by
placing the HTTP pages in a FTP accessible directory. Since there are
already some CDROMs available on the market that contain Linux/MIPS
stuff I believe this would be a big advantage. Who puts /pub/linux/mips/
on his CDROM distribution would automatically also get /pub/linux/mips/www/.
Next point is that we could try to document all the uploaded stuff with
Web pages. The point is that integration of Web pages and ftp would form
a new thing. An idea that I like.
