I agree with Dan. FTP is a old, insecure protocol, and we don't need
anonymous uploads at all. Platform maintainers can use their SSH key to
gain access to the file storage.

I would recommend using a Yubikey for this, stored in a safe at the
Blender Institute. Getting the right key is easy once it's poured into
