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:
Par is similar but superior to the fmt(1) command included in the base system. Par is a filter that copies its input to its output, changing all white characters (except newlines) to spaces, and reformatting each paragraph. Paragraphs are separated by protected, blank, and bodiless lines (see the Terminology section for definitions), and optionally delimited by indentation (see the d option in the Options section). Each output paragraph is generated from the corresponding input paragraph as follows: 1) An optional prefix and/or suffix is removed from each input line. 2) The remainder is divided into words (separated by spaces). 3) The words are joined into lines to make an eye-pleasing paragraph. 4) The prefixes and suffixes are reattached. If there are suffixes, spaces are inserted before them so that they all end in the same column.

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.

*/*: Remove redundant '-[0-9]*' from CONFLICTS

The conflict checks compare the patterns first against the package
names without version (as reported by "pkg query "%n"), then - if
there was no match - agsinst the full package names including the
version (as reported by "pkg query "%n-%v").

Many CONFLICTS definitions used patterns like "bash-[0-9]*" to filter
for the bash package in any version. But that pattern is functionally
identical with just "bash".

Updaye to v1.53.0. (20 years since the previous release!)

From the release notes:
Par 1.53.0 released 2020-Mar-14
    Fixed the following bugs:
        An unintended bad interaction between <quote> and <repeat>.
            The specification was inconsistent.  Although it said that
            the lines inserted by the <quote> feature were vacant,
            the <repeat> feature could interpret the quote character
            of inserted lines as a repeat character, in which case
            the lines were not vacant (according to the definition),
            and more quote/repeat characters would be inserted to
            extend the line to the full width, which no one would ever
            want.  The definition of "bodiless line" is revised so that
            lines inserted by the <quote> feature are excluded from
