Synopsis: Proxied ftp (re)fetch displays size wrongly
State-Changed-When: Wed, 16 May 2007 05:31:24 +0000
The ftp(1) documentation specifies that -R doesn't work with proxied
transfers, although the program doesn't enforce this restriction at this time.
There's at least two solutions available:
* Enforce the restriction that -R doesn't work with (HTTP) proxies.
* Switch to using HTTP/1.1 (from HTTP/1.0) for proxied transfers which
should allow us to implement -R for these.
If the latter isn't viable, the former will have to be done.
