RFC: a standardised location for uploading files

Recommended Posts

For those of us running TNFS servers that allow uploading of files, I'd like to propose a standardised location for that to take place.  My suggestion is a directory named 'incoming' in the root of the TNFS hierarchy.

 

This is in keeping with the tradition of anonymous (or, in some cases, access-controlled) FTP sites, which used /incoming as their point to receive files.  Given the largely-anonymous nature of TNFS and also wanting to keep things simple, this seems like a reasonable fit.

 

By no means am I saying that everyone running a TNFS server has to conform to this idea.  However, it can't hurt to have a widely-known location for uploads to be left in.

Sounds good to me(tm)! :)
