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.

ports-mgmt/synth: Upgrade version 1.54 => 1.60

Major new feature: Web-based front-end

  A dynamic html report is now generated for each build.  The report is
  placed at <profile log directory>/Report/index.html.

  The report is updated 10 times per minute.  The entire build history
  is retained and is searchable, but that history is reset at the start
  of the next run.

  In addition, several fields are clickable and trigger a quick-filter
  on the history log including the "Built", "Failed", "Ignored",
  "Skipped", "No." column and "ID" column (see tiptool for action hint)
  and the "Total" field clears the search pattern quickly.

  An earlier but representative version of the web report can be seen at:

  The Synth web report pulls 2 orders of magnitude less data than the
  equivalent poudriere report because the json data is split into
  multiple files limited to 500 ports each (e.g. the poudriere data file
  might be 1.8 Mb on a big bulk run polled every 8 seconds where as
  Synth only pulls the latest segment file (50kb avg) every 6 seconds.
  Synth also stops polling when the run is complete.

Minor enhancement: The log files were cleaned up

  The data/phase headers and footers were modified so that the build
  log appears a lot cleaner now (subjective of course).

ports-mgmt/synth: Yet another release candidate

Unfortunately, there's been a bit too much change since 0.99_6 to
confidently release version 1.00, so another release candidate is
necessary.  Both new features and bug fixes were added.

New features:
  * Provide ability to define environment variables in a profile
  * Support fetching by proxy using these environment variables
  * Add zsh and bash completion scripts
  * Accept port origins with trailing file separators (so people
    using completion scripts don't have to backtrack to remove them)
  * In text (non-curses) mode, output the current package build
    tally every 200 seconds (approximately)

Bug fixes:
  * Fix support for system roots that don't match host (e.g.
  * Fix ABI check for system roots that don't match host
  * Remove effect of system /etc/make.conf (originally seen when
    MAKE_JOBS_NUMBER was defined there and disabled synth)

Add new port: ports-mgmt/synth

Synth is a custom packge repository builder for FreeBSD and DragonFly.
It is intended to replace Portmaster, portupgrade, and poudriere for
the average user.  It is simple to learn (the powerful options are
limited in number) and user-friendly, but it is extremely fast due
to its parallel building capability.  It will "drop-in" on any system
as it leverages the stock pkg(8) facilities.  All ports are built
in a clean environment, so it is finally safe to build ports as
needed on a live system.  The default profile is the system itself, not
a new jail, which can be a valuable feature for some environments.

(more text on pkg-desc).
It's ready for wider testing now.
