I don't think refactoring is a good thing to do between RC1 and RC2, because of the test coverage is quite poor, so it's high probable that with refactoring we introduce new bugs, so i thing we can clean the code before the RC1, and increase  test coverage and fix new bugs between  RC1 and final release.

I think that for this first GNU release, the most important goal, is to
have something that "works".

So, from my point of view (I don't know very much about FTP features of
MyServer) fixing the missing documentation as well as trying to correct
as much bugs as we can, are the most important targets before releasing
the RC1 version.

Next, the transition from RC1 to RC2, should aim to clean at least the
recently added code (a week of refactoring should be enough to achieve
that). Then in the week preceding the 0.9 release, we can do strong
testing again.

After the 0.9 release, we can concentrate on the new features to add
within MyServer, but, as we discussed along with Daniele, I think we
should to do the effort to plan smaller task, each with a clearer
description about of what to do. To achieve that, we should pone ourself
from the point of view of a developer who doesn't know anything about
MyServer internals, making him able to start working right away. This
will attract more developers for sure.

Best regards,
