Did you also consider looking through the wishlist bugs and… using the one
thats most approbiate to ask about its status and probably vote on it?
Also… – that didn´t come to my mind as you asked on kdepim-users – in one way
or another it might be helpful to contact developers about it, there is a
frameworks development mailing list and as KIO is a framework… But I think
either commenting on an existing bug report… or if none of them are suitable
creating a new one… would be the first step.
As to why there is not ftps support in KIO I have no idea.
