Right, which is why I want to be able to upload with an ftp client and
then extract the tar.gz using the web tool. Thanks for saying that I'm
stupid without even understanding the obvious, by the way.

Oh, was I so stupid that I didn't know what an FTP client was? Is that
what you think?

That's not the point at all.

I don't think so. That's the issue of many people have a lot of pain
uploading a big number of files using FTP, while uploading a tar.gz and
extract it would be so fast compared to it.

Why is that funny?

Why too?

The purpose here is to have something uploaded in Debian, did you
understand that very point? I don't think so...

There are ways using javascript, but yes, java or flash could be the way
as well.

All together, thanks a lot for this very nasty and impolite reply. I
don't see your point replying this way, this doesn't help anyone, and I
believe that it's annoying a lot of readers here, while I believe that
my concern is legitimate and that many people had the issue as well.
