APT goes crazy with alpha.gnu.org
As you might have noticed, alpha.gnu.org's FTPd recently stopped
asking for a password for the "anonymous" user , and now allows
that user to login directly.
This breaks some clients that are not prepared to cope with it. For
example, apt-get does:
< 220 GNU alpha FTP server ready.
> USER anonymous
< 230 Login successful. Have fun.
> PASS email@example.com
< 500 Unknown command.
Is alpha.gnu.org adhering to standards, or should we fix apt?
