Ok, I was happy to see that when I download Twisted 1.0.5, but I'm still
missing docs on how to set up servers for POP3, NNTP, IRC and FTP, how to
deploy files in a Twisted.Web application ( how to organize the files,
folder-structure etc. ) and finding out if the Gnutella and OSCAR ( for use
against running ICQ-servers ) implementations are working ( after that, how
to use them :-) ).

I'm currently looking at HEP Messaging Server to figure out the POP3-thing,
but the rest is .... more uncertain ( I was gonna say it was up to you guys,
but ... I guess I have to do some experimentation with the test-cases in the
source. ) If anyone has any functional code related to the protocols
mentioned above lying around I'd be a very camper if you let me have a look
at it.

Anyway, I'm not trying to put Twisted down, I'm a very enthusiastic user and
look forward to anything else coming from the Twisted-team in the near

Best regards,
