FTP could work as well, but I would advise that the FTP upload be 
directed somewhere known so that the rest of the "chain" stays intact. 
Just use git or some other SCM so the uploads can be pushed, etc. I'd 
still prefer the PUT solution over FTP (personally) because it keeps the 
control of what happens in the hands of the server/customer.
