Thanks for a submit. To clarify, a qualification task is to implement 
this feature for one protocol, and samba's implementation seems correct 
(not tested yet though). Patches you resubmitted for libssh, file ftp 
have to be reviewed and fixed too, but this may be done later, not 
necessarily during qualification task submission.

As you see, some of the last year project's job is already done, so this 
project may be extended by implementing delete and rename API as well. 
It has about the same complexity as the listing API that is already 

I will add this task to list and set myself as mentor.
