[ec2-beta] Springloops Deployment via SFTP

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. This question about deploying  
from Springloops sort of stems from my lack of understanding about  
security and ssh and how the Ubuntu EC2 logins are set up. So I  
appologize if this sounds kinda silly..

Springloops is a Subversion repository service online. It allows you  
to set up multiple server destinations which it can deploy your  
projects to via FTP or SFTP. It's pretty simple actually, but I am  
curious as to weather or not this is a safe thing to do as it would  
require setting up an FTP server on my instance.

So far I have just been using ssh to login with my keypair, and have  
been using scp to move files up and down to my local machine... would  
there be a risk in setting up an FTP server, or maybe a better way to  
ask this would be, would this be in keeping with the current ssh  
keypair style login/security model for the server itself?


It's not clear to me what you're trying to accomplish.  Are you wanting
to run the web app on EC2 or on Springloops.com?  Are you trying to
access subversion from EC2? or FTP?  What about the key settings
concerns you and what key settings are you referring to?

If you're still having problems, could you rephrase your question and
provide more details?
