GNOME Network

I forgot
yesterday
to mention the Personal Web Server tool (sorry
à lvaro).
It was a bit intentional, since it needs a lot of love. What I myself
want for that tool is to be a generic file sharing tool, able to
use any protocol available on the machine (HTTP, FTP, NFS, SMB, NCP),
and I would also like it to be better integrated in the desktop.

For that integration, I think the best thing would be to make it an
extension to Nautilus, so a ‘Share’ menu item shows up in the Nautilus
context menu for folders. Also, a new properties page would allow
the user to share the selected folder via any of the supported
protocols.
