[Archivesspace_Users_Group] FTP in Digital Object File URI

Currently it doesn't support ftp:// urls, but this would not be a hard feature to implement if requested.

However, I'm curious why FTP would be preferred? A password protected web directory would be pretty easy to setup.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] FTP in Digital Object File URI

Is an FTP address supported as a hyperlink in the File URI field for digital objects?  Our IT department (which is offsite) would like to host our public facing files on an FTP address.  A test did not support "ftp" but did support "https".  Any downsides to using an FTP site that I should be aware of and share with them?
