  • Milestone set to 0.10
  • Owner changed from jonas to cboos
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to trivial
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

Ok, something like Can't upload empty files would probably be a bit better.

Well, yes. Maybe there is a reason out there where an empty file is needed by someone. So the best solution would be to allow zero length files.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Well, most of the time uploading an empty file would be done by mistake. If an empty file is really needed as a placeholder or such (?) one can take the extra pain to create a file with a linefeed inside.
