We have a lot of optional "file upload" controls in our web application.
When submitting a form without any files uploaded, FileArrayBinder throws NullPointerException.

Framework version: 1.3.1
Platform you're using: Unix

Reproduction steps:
1. Open a page with form containing
2. Do not upload any file
3. Submit the form
4. Result: we have validation error for field "cv", despite the fact that this field is not required.

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
