Description

17 years ago
In order that new users are shown the README (hopefully revised as per bug id
117547) when downloading files from ftp.mozilla.org via HTTP, implement this
suggestion:

<timeless>   basically the proposal would be to make the ftp server's webserver
give you the login message at the top of the first page in the ftp hierarchy,
where first is defined by referer, so if your web browser dropped referer on the
floor, you'd get it constantly.
This would be for http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/*

you probably have to modify your httpd.conf to show a file named README

default is:
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t

change it to:
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* RCS CVS *,v *,t

FTP via HTTP is handled by the mirror sites.

We are no longer using FTP for the main rotation.  Thank goodness.
