The commit 5ce4f4e (Documentation/urls: Rewrite to accomodate <transport>::<address>, 2010-04-06) that came from http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/145196/focus=145205 was supposed to be just a clarification of the document, but it added ftp to the list without justification. Its earlier round is this http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/143499 and it did not mention ftp; I wonder why we missed this addition during the review process. The ftp transport might have worked for fetching in the distant past for "dumb and slow" commit walking fetches, but it was never supposed to work with any kind of pushes as far as I know. I wouldn't be surprised if the dumb and slow commit walking fetch no longer works with ftp. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
