(S)FTP access for AROS Archives?

Hey folks,

Out of curiosity, is there a way of accessing the AROS Archives using (S)FTP? Not that I mind grabbing needed tools from the web page itself, but FTP for me would be significantly faster to pull in much needed software.

Hi LambdaCalculus,

No, not that i am ware off.

However, you can use wget to reach similar results and there is also a special download tool that grabs things from the archives (sorry the name eludes me atm).

There is an index file that this program uses, but you can grab that index file yourself as well in order to make something semi-automated in combination with wget (or curl).

As the backend administrator of the archives I'd be happy to set up the server to send the files to a ftp mirror if that is something the AROS community wants.

I cast my vote for this idea! :)

Just having an FTP mirror for AROS software alone (nothing against Aminet whatsoever, mind!) would be much easier for me to browse through and grab exactly what I need.
