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.

Epylog is a syslog parser which runs periodically, looks at your logs,
processes some of the entries in order to present them in a more comprehensible
format, and then mails you the output. It is written specifically for large
network clusters where a lot of machines (around 50 and upwards) log to the
same loghost using syslog or syslog-ng. It is an alternative to a similar
package, called LogWatch.
