I think a really big deal has been made of this. The chap it seems was merely a bsd fan, trying to mirror the ports pages, and openbsd ports too, and perhaps hoping to get a few donations to help pay for the hosting.
Seriously how many people donate to make anything significant. Max he should have done is asked freshports.org for permission. But in this BSD world some of us live in, we think the source of web content is also open enuf as the BSD license and i can copy it and do whatever we want with it. Can we stop calling this poor guy a criminal.
Real theives are people who take freebsd code and put it into things like linux, and other OSes and dont give credit. At least apple gives credit, the whole tcp/ip stack in win9x was taken from *bsd projects without credit. boo-hoo maybe we should accuse them for fraud too, they are making some serious money.
let it be!
