print/foomatic-db port now uses CVS current version which means
unstable 3.1.
Other print/foomatic-* ports use now 3.0.2 STABLE version.
As you can read from www.linuxprinting.org/foomatic.html we should
use STABLE 3.0 database version with other 3.0 foomatic packages.

The print/foomatic-db port database is over a year old.

I changed CVS_BRANCH to foomatic-3_0-branch, which is a STABLE branch.
I upgraded CVS_DATE tag to 20050304.
I changed PORTVERSION to 3.0.${CVS_DATE}.
I changed repository to reflect the one on www.linuxprinting.org/foomatic.html

I enclose a patch to this port:

Is it somehow possible to name a package version with the date of
building (here fetching) a port? It would be unnecessary to update
CVS_DATE manually in Makefile.
Thanks for reading.
