@wxcafe i am not sure either. adding features to ftps could have been a viable alternative for many things, but then how easier does it make things overall to be over http, and integrated with the public http interface,

@zalasur @CobaltVelvet So did I! I meant that with sincere admiration. A few years ago I even got to meet one of the guys who worked on it.
