Hi, thanks for your great work!

You state that "FreshPorts has everything you want to know about
FreeBSD software, ports, packages, applications, whatever term you
want to use." Could you make the word 'FreeBSD' being a link
to http://www.freebsd.org , please?

Also, your statement might be even more true ;-) if you add 2 links to each
port, right after the links "CVSWeb : Sources : Main Web Site." making it e.g.
"CVSWeb : Sources : Main Web Site : Distfiles Availability : Build Logs."

1. To a distfiles survey (e.g. http://www.freshports.org/math/maxima/ can
be linked to
http://people.freebsd.org/~fenner/portsurvey/math.html#maxima ).
2. To the logs of the package build (to
http://portsmon.freebsd.org/portoverview.py?category=math&portname=maxima ).

What do you think, is it feasible?

Best regards,
Vladimir

This is now in production.

FYI: The link to portsmon was already coded. However, It was disabled. I don't know why. I do recall coding it.

I think, I can see now where it was coded. The results of a serch give
a similar list of links, including the link to portsmon, but not the link to
portsurvey.
