FTP site administrator tasks

The administrator of the ftp site has to appropriately set permissions, so to avoid unauthorized direct user upload into the main Algs_dir directory while permitting upload to the Alg_candidates directory.

The administrator is also be responsible of incorporating the newly submitted algs in the main tree repository (i.e. moving the selected algorithms from the Algs_candidates directory to the Algs_dir).
Remember to delete the /Algs_content/summary.txt file every time you directly change the content of the Algs_dir.

Hopefully future versions of the program will have a more effective evaluation process, allowing the direct insertion of the algorithms into the common repository through some kind of web based peer to peer shared evaluation.
