Every version of the FTP specification has added a few new commands,
with the early ones summarized in RFC 959. RFC 2389
established a mechanism for specifying and negotiating
extensions to the FTP protocol specified in RFC 959, by
means of "FEAT Strings" identifying extensions supported by the FTP
server, and sent in response to a "FEAT" command. As the number of
those extensions increases, it appears useful to establish an IANA
registry to reduce the likelihood of conflict of names and the
consequent ambiguity. This specification establishes that registry.
Working Group Summary
This is not a WG document.
Nothing to note. There have been no negative comments or objections.
FTP vendors appear to support the formation of this registry.
There's every reason to believe that they will use it.
Barry Leiba is the document shepherd. Alexey Melnikov is
the responsible AD.
