i've been working on a portable version of NetBSD's ftpd, called
`lukemftpd' in the same vein as `lukemftp'.

the purpose of this software is to provide the NetBSD-current ftpd to
older NetBSD systems and to foreign systems such as Solaris, Linux, ...

the first release version is available at:

to feedback problems, please email me at, with the
following info:
	system version (e.g, `uname -a`)
	compiler and version (`which cc`, `cc -v`)


why does this exist when wu-ftpd (and derivatives) already exist?
	- it has had less security holes (there have been problems,
	  but not as many)
	- cleaner configuration (IMHO)
	- smaller (1/3rd the size of wuftpd with ~90% of the options)
