Re: Why the insecure services??

* Jonathan Hseu 

| http://db.debian.org/ allows login via the web both securely and insecurely.
| Why even give the option of an insecure login that will give away the password
| in cleartext?

Because you might not be on a secure box anyhow, or the box you are
using might not support SSL?

| On a same, but less severe note: why allow anonymous FTP uploads?

Why not?  They do no harm, and DDs who don't want accounts on
*.debian.org doesn't have to have them.

Unix _IS_ user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
