NOTE: the WWW: line in pkg-descr was relocated to a WWW= line in Makefile. Each port in FreshPorts has a homepage link. Look for it right after the Description: on each port's home page.

Do I know someone who can pick up a server from 7401 E. Ben White Blvd. Austin TX?

The emphasis is on know, or recommended by someone I know. This is the original FreshPorts server, way past useful: RAID, 8GB RAM, etc. The drives need to be wiped and everything recycled.

Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these
pkg-descr files.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

mail/nmh*: Change default mail transport method

nmh supports three mail transport methods: smtp, which submits email to
the submission port (587), sendmail/smtp, submitting SMTP to the MTA
through a pipe, and sendmail/pipe, submitting raw email to the MTA where
the MTA extracts the from and to headers from the email itself, using
sendmail -t.

The reason for this change is to support the upcoming 14-CURRENT
switchover from sendmail to dma (DragonflyBSD Mail Agent). The dma agent
only supports SMTP over port 25 and works well using sendmail -t while
all other transport methods do not work.

This change only affects new installs of nmh and nmh-devel.  Users of
existing nmh installations who wish to use the new dma agent will need
to alter ${LOCALBASE}/etc/nmh/mts.conf by hand by changing the mts
statement to mts: sendmail/pipe. The existing file is not altered when
pkg upgrade is invoked. However users of sendmail in base, sendmail
port, postfix, exim, and qmail are not affected by this and may use
their existing mts.conf.

The dma agent is not currently installed by default but users may install
it by enabling MK_DMAGENT in src.conf and building/installing 14-CURRENT
world. This patch allows nmh to work with dma agent when it is installed
and made to be the default MTA in /etc/mail/mailer.conf.

mail/nmh-devel: Add new port

There hass been quite a bit of development of nmh over the last four
years since 1.7.1 was released. This new nmh-devel port will track nmh
development. As the nmh git repo is hosted on, there
is no easy way to fetch development snapshots like we do through
github. Therefore I've mirrored the repo at
( and pushed it to a
mirror I maintain on my github account. (Pulling from remote
upstream -- remote origin has been renamed to remote upstream --
and pushing to remote origin.)

Welcome the new nmh-devel port.
