v.w.o seems to need passive FTP.

Could someone add this to the relevant Apache configuration files and
restart (-HUP) the port 80 and 8001 instances?

  SetEnv FTP_PASSIVE 1

Recent CVS checklink and validator default to passive mode, but until
they're updated, the setups are bitten by:

  ville@validator:~$ HEAD ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2506.txt

Ditto for GET.
