I agree it's a very useful tool, easier than the globus-* alternatives
since it's a full ftp client.

It does look like it, with the last commit over 2 years ago and the last
release over 5 years ago.

I don't know if Jason Alt wants to keep maintaining it, I think he still
works for Globus, but since they are moving away from RFC3820, uberftp
is no longer useful there. If not it would make sense to incorporate it
under https://github.com/gridcf It does seem like Mattias has also
dropped it from Fedora? https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=uberftp
But it's still in EPEL7.
