Definitely +1 on this, but it's already been done.  You must have an old
checkout that you're doing cvs updates on.  It's a good thing too since
you wouldn't have caught the AIXFTPEntryParser sitting there.  We ought
to look at the log entries and see if it was subsumed by the functionality
in one of the other parsers.

In any case, everything in ftp2/ and ftp/parser/ is in the Attic/
in the CVS repository, so when you do a fresh checkout, the directories will
be empty.  My .cvsrc adds -P to checkout and update (doesn't checkout
empty directories), so I didn't know what you were talking about at first.
Okay, scratch what I just said.  I see, you're talking about what's in the
proposal directory.  Yeah, definitely get rid of proposal/ftp2.  The way to
do it is to delete the files and do cvs removes.  After looking at the log
entry for AIXFTPEntryParser, I see I added it:
>revision 1.1
>date: 2003/01/28 18:53:04;  author: dfs;  state: Exp;

That was in the 1.0 release, before the proposal was moved into the
ftp package.  The files in src/java/org/apache/commons/net/ftp/parser
were added later and first appear in the 1.1 release candidate.  So
AIXFTPEntryParser didn't get copied from the proposal directory for
some reason.  I'm not in the best position to do the detective work
on this right now, but can look at it tomorrow night if you don't
have time to figure out if AIXFTPEntryParser functionality is already
provided by another entry parser or if we just missed it when migrating
the entry parsers.  I suppose the proposal directory is another possibility
I hadn't considered for doing work on a java.nio version of the code.

In these [net] threads, I think we've pretty much made the case for switching
to Subversion sooner rather than later.  Subversion is close to a 1.0
release and I believe they've stopped modifying the database schema, so the
question will become whether all of Jakarta Commons should move to Subversion
at once or piecemeal and when.  But that's a subject for a different thread.
