[Box-Admins] Adding/updating files in FTP (Re: other images)

I can offer two solutions to the issue of hosting images for various
people (the FTP side of the problem anyway).

1.  The web team takes responsibility for this (you already own the
overall FTP directory) and anyone that wants an image hosted sends it to
you or tells you where to get it from.  This way the 'customer' has to
work through the web team.  In the past this hasn't worked so well since
there hasn't often been more than 1-2 active members and there have been
a couple of past instances (John McIntosh's Mac VM updates for example)
where the team has not been very responsive to update requests.

2.  A folder is created in the FTP site and under that folder there are
seperate folders for each type of image and each of those is owned by
the image developer.  Each developer would have his/her own account on
box2.  This is much as I have already done for Damien and his
Developer's image.

I'm not too happy with the idea of creating and managaing a bunch of
accounts and would prefer that we start with solution #1 and see how it
goes.  Maybe having a larger number of requests more often will result
in a faster response time than in the past.  If that doesn't work maybe
I will come up with a third solution by the time we find out.
