An FTP server that I must mirror does not place the content into a
subdirectory such as "pub". I can't know a priori what files and directories
are in the top level directory. Leaving off the -r flag causes this error:
fmirror: remotedir not set
Using -r . or -r / causes output like this:
01:45:21 . @ xxx.com -> .
01:45:21 Connecting to xxx.com...
01:45:23 Remote timezone: 420 minutes from GMT
01:45:23 Operation failed: 553 Permission denied.
01:45:23 Could not CWD to '..', aborting
The authors' emails bounce, and the maintainer does not respond.
Fix: Here's a minimal fix that lets me use "-r /". Another would be to no
longer require -r.
How-To-Repeat: Use -r . or -r / or leave -r off.
Awaiting maintainers approval.
I'll handle this.
