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.

OCaml: transient update of the stack to version 4.07.1

This is the first step in modernizing our OCaml ports infrastructure,
as we had accumulated substantial technical debt over the years when
many of its consumer ports had not received proper care and updates.

It is currently considered as the lowest supported version (baseline)
in majority of open-source OCaml projects, which would help to pull
up other ports, e.g. `devel/ocaml-dune' in smaller, manageable pieces.

For conservative hackers among us and for compatibility with RHEL 8
which is also on it, having 4.07 in the tree would allow users stick
to that package (pkg lock it) if needed.
