Almost. E.g. I am using a LAN-wide (anonymous-only) ftp server, I set up
a long time ago and rarely touched since then.
Using httpd-server would simply be overkill for this use-case.
IMHO explicitly disabling FTP in dnf would be fine, as any fallout
could be easily dealt with by enabling HTTP. Just ensure we announce
such intent ahead of time via a Fedora feature proposal.
I don't agree. Not
using a protocol on public dnf-servers is on thing,
but removing the "ftp" protocol everywhere is just silly fanatism, IMHO.
