Using FTP to transfer files is a practise which has generally fallen out of favour in the past 20 years as FTP is both insecure and can unnecessarily complicates firewall rules. These days servers have generally switched to using more secure methods such as OpenSSH and HTTPS for transferring files. With this in mind, Ed Maste proposed moving the aging FTP server software (ftpd) out of FreeBSD's core and making it a separate package administrators could install if needed. This would reduce the size of the core FreeBSD system and remove insecure software unless specifically needed and installed by the administrator. The proposal has been met with strong opposition from FreeBSD members who still use the insecure FTP protocol and retracted.
