I was recently informed that bareFTP is now included in the official fedora repositories. Users of fedora 10 (and soon 9) can now easily install bareFTP using the standard repositories and tools. As far as I know this is the first major distro to officially include it. Great news! And a great job by the fedora packaging guys!
Several other distros now also provide test/community/unsupported packages of bareFTP. We’ll see who will be the next to officially include it..
It is also a bit interesting to see how almost every mention of bareFTP in forums and blogs tends to end up in a great debate about Mono. I will probably post my views on this here later.
