Hosting documentation/File release management
From Bioinformatics.Org Wiki
Uploading the file to be released
This step must be completed before going to the upload form.
Anonymous FTP is once again being supported for file uploads. Use the username "anonymous" along with your email address as the password.
Project administrators can also access the "incoming" directory using SCP or SFTP. The following Unix SCP command is an example:
$ scp myrelease firstname.lastname@example.org:/ftproot/incoming/
If you're using Windows, FileZilla offers a graphical interface.
For more information on SSH, please visit http://www.openssh.org/.

Your file must be of the following recognized filetypes (identified by the file extension):

Selecting the file
Once you have uploaded the file, select your file from the pull-down menu and submit. If you do not see your file listed, then reload the form.
Important: You may see files here from other projects. Please do not add them to your own project. Also, files more than one hour old are purged from the "incoming" directory every minute.
