Description

BASE 2.16 adds support for file items that are stored externally. See http://base.thep.lu.se/ticket/1485

We need to investigate how this affects the FTP server and fix issues that we find.

The simple solution is to not show any external files in the ftp view. It may work to show such files as read-only if we know the file size.

(In [1225]) Fixes #264: Investigate and fix issues with external files introduced in BASE 2.16

External files will show up as read-only for the FTP program. Files with an unknown size are reported to have size=0. This is not allowed in all cases by the FTP protocol. It is most likely only an issue when appending to a partly uploaded file and since we don't allow uploading there shouldn't be any problem.
