Well, I can only ftp in only if i am on the vpn. But yes, its a
security concern.  I was thinking, i can maintian a local clone on my
windows machine and patch the server version when ever i do sync to
petsc-next on the local machine. I do not sync the code that often.

The plan may work only if i can download the external packages onto
local machine which is a windows system with no compilers, python
