Hi, members of portsmgr, thanks for your huge effort
to maintain ports system.

While I was processing biology/tinker pr,
I noticed it was marked as RESTRICTED. I read lisence file in tinker,
it is appropreate. 

However this file is available on!

>From porter's handbook it reads:

> Set this variable if the application's license also forbids us from

so that basically we cannot fetch from and its mirrors,
however, i typed:

% fetch
Receiving tinker.tar.gz (5658289 bytes): 100% (ETA 00:00)  
5658289 bytes transferred in 33.7 seconds (164.07 kBps)

I fetched successfully. I think it is wrong thing. From CVS logs,
there is always `RESTRICTED' line, so that this situation seems to
violate the tinker's license.
I messed up since RESTRICTED is not seemed to be valid.

Does anyone can remove this file from and its mirrors?
