    I've always thought SourceForge's FRS system was *DUMB*.

    "Let me get this straight - I can't use the web interface to upload a file. I have to ftp it using an anonymous login. Oh, and I have to remember to cd to the '/incoming' directory first, then upload it. Then, I grab it out of a pool of files and attach it to my project. Oh, and anyone could steal my files before I have the chance to associate them with my project. Got it".

    Totally retarded crap. This is the only GForge interface I've seen that does this. On the other ones (well, one) that I use, you upload the file directly via a "choose file" button - one easy step. None of this ftp-and-grab-it-out-of-a-pool crap.

    • Is there a better, public service or do you have a local installation?
      • For Perl? No, there isn't one, which is kinda why I would like to see a PerlForge. I suppose there's always Savannah.
        • Savannah is also PHP based. However, there is a perl-based alternative. Autrijus' openfoundry is based on RT and various other pieces of perl. (
    • You can upload a file through the web interface. I didn't try that in this case. I don't know how long they've had the file upload, but it is indeed there. At least, you can in the QRS; it appears maybe you can't in the FRS.
