Hello there.
I am Aris, the author of libssh ( ), a ssh 
client library. I'd like to participate to Summer of code, and I hope I 
mailed the good mailing list.
I've already sent my application to netbsd, but i'd like your advices and 
thoughs on the project.

My project would be to create a sftp server, that is, a file transfer protocol 
over SSH. It would use libssh server (which has to be coded).
The interest of doing another one sftp server is the fact that there is only 
one FOSS sftp server (namely, openssh) and the fact that this server is not 
suitable for some problems that are usualy handled by popular standard FTP 
server :
-Anonymous accounts
-Jailing user accesses
-ACL on file access not based on standard FS acls
-File transfer logging
I would be happy to receive feedback on how you perceive this projet and what 
you think about it.
