http uploads of large files can be incredibly painful and problematic. I think redmine site admins should be able to ftp large files over to the server and then import them from the local file system. In this case, I want to add a 1 gig disk image under the files module to be released to my customers. It's been an incredibly painful experience getting it to the site. It's not as simple as just uploading a small dummy file to create all the database entries and such and then replacing the dummy file with the much larger file via ftp as I would also have to recreate and update all the associated info in the database manually such as the md5 hash, etc. I'd be interested in working on this with the developers but i'm only just about to sit down and start learning ruby/rails so I don't know that I'd be much help for a while!
