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.

Remove the header for ports I created.

For dns/openresolv give proper attribution. This was a copy/paste
mistake the submitter made, which incorrectly gave me attribution
for that file. I did not create it.

Update to 20110317. This rolls up the patch committed previously
and addresses a (now-fixed) problem when bsd.sites.mk was using Ftp://
instead of ftp://. [1]

Add a patch to workaround a bug noticed by Doug Barton.
The new code will silently ignore MASTER_SITE_GOOGLE_CODE and
MASTER_SITE_DEBIAN_POOL unless specifically asked to sort them, in which
case an error message is printed.

Most of the patch came from Ryan Steinmetz <rpsfa@rit.edu> with small
additions by me.
