Bug#1869: wu-ftpd has the old ftp.debian.org bug :-/

Package: wu-ftpd
Version: 2.4-13

As you can see, wu-ftpd on chiark violates the FTP protocol pretty
badly when the pwd fails.  This makes ncftp fall over.

250-To get files uploaded to ftp.debian.org via chiark:
250-1. Upload it to chiark:/pub/debian/private/project/Incoming.
250-2. Move the files using RENAME to chiark:.../project/queue.
250-If you want to abort an upload you may delete files from Incoming or
250-queue.  Do not simply upload to queue, as chiark may start to transfer
250-the file to ftp.debian.org before you're finished uploading it.
250 CWD command successful.

221 Goodbye.
