upload it all to /var/www/xfc.xfce.org/, that's the dedicated directory 
that is served on the web. Mind you there is IMPORTANT stuff already in 
there, so don't overwrite that (viewcvs etc).

Your homedirectory is for whatever you wish to do with it (keep it 
reasonable pls ;^))

You can't. I take care of that stuff. 'xfc-list' is very generic, 
perhaps you wish to use 'xfc-user(s)', 'xfc-dev' or something that 
classifies it properly. 'xfc' is also possible but try to stay away from 
that as much as possible (those general mail addresses tend to gather 
lots of cruft).

just upload it to the xfc web directory. You might want to create a 
special folder /download/ underneath there. We don't serve ftp at the 
moment. But the webserver can show list fancy indexes etc. if you need. 
Just ask.
