Subject: Re: [gopher] Gopher+ Uploading
nice proposal, but (you expected it) I have some comments.
1. The client should tell the server the suggested gopher type of the
uploaded file. The server can act with this information as with the
other, use or ignore (and override) it.
2. The server should send a final response after the file has been
uploaded (this implies that a filesize of -2 as upload parameter can
not be used). I suggest three types of responses. Each response
is formatted like a gopher directory entry:
3Error processing upload
to signal an error,
to tell the client that the upload is ok, and the full item's
gopher directory entry
to tell the client that everything is ok and to give him the
location of the file.
In case the upload is ok the server may choose if it sends only
the basic `i'-ok or the whole directory entry. The latter assumes
that the server has processed the upload completly which may not
be always true.
