Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Description:
WireGuard is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPSec, while avoiding the massive headache. It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard is designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and super computers alike, fit for many different circumstances. This package does not contain anything by itself - it is a "meta-port" that depends on other wireguard packages.

USES:

pkg-message:
For install:
For FreeBSD < 12.1 only the userland implementation wireguard-go is available. For FreeBSD >= 12.1 we default to use the kernel module if_wg(4). If you experience problems with it you can switch back to wireguard-go by removing net/wireguard-kmod and making sure net/wireguard-go is installed. The userland tools wg-quick(8) and wg(8) try to use kernel support if the kernel module is available and otherwise fall back to wireguard-go automatically. Config files are fully compatible.

    Affects: users of net/wireguard
    Author: decke@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      A wireguard kernel implementation supporting FreeBSD 12.1 and newer was
      added as net/wireguard-kmod recently.
    
      The new default for users of net/wireguard is the kernel module.
    
      If you experience problems with it you can switch back to wireguard-go
      by removing net/wireguard-kmod and making sure net/wireguard-go is
      installed.
      The userland tools wg-quick(8) and wg(8) try to use kernel support if
      the kernel module is available and otherwise fall back to wireguard-go
      automatically. Config files are fully compatible.

net/wireguard: Mark DEPRECATED

This metaport was only useful when we had multiple wireguard ports in
the portstree. With the deprecation of net/wireguard-kmod this metaport
is also not needed anymore.

Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in 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.

net/wireguard: Update to 1.0.20210315 and drop BASHCOMPLETION option

BASHCOMOPLETION option was dropped but we install shell completion files
unconditionally to follow porters handbook.

This is the first wireguard-tools version that supports FreeBSD's kernel
implementation. It is compatible with if_wg in FreeBSD 14-CURRENT which
will likely be backported in the future but incompatible with the if_wg
code that was present in stable/13 up to 13.0-RC3.

WireGuard is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes
state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner,
and more useful than IPSec, while avoiding the massive headache. It
intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard is
designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and
super computers alike, fit for many different circumstances.
