Subject: FreeBSD ports: 3 unfetchable distfiles:

> Dear kazu at,
> You are listed as the FreeBSD port maintainer for 3 ports

> Problems are usually of two types:
> 1. The software package has been upgraded and the version in the
> port has been removed.  The best solution to this problem is to
> upgrade the port to the most current version of the software package.

> 2. The mirror site being used no longer contains the software package

> a) If there are other mirror sites, just remove the bad site
> from the list.  (Make sure that what appears to be a bad site
> isn't actually a problem of type 1, upgrade)
> b) If the README or other support files in the software
> documentation mention where to get the software package,
> use one of those sites.
> c) Use a search engine to find another place to get the original
> DISTFILES.  Make sure that you don't pick a FreeBSD distfiles
> mirror -- if you can't find any other places where the file
> exists, it can be a LOCAL_PORT or you can simply comment out
> the MASTER_SITES= line, with a comment explaining why.
> Once you have a solution, use "send-pr" to submit a "diff -u" of the
> Makefile.
> Note that this isn't an urgent issue, as people who try to
> build the port now will just fall back to the FreeBSD distfiles mirror.
> Please just put it on your list to do and get to it when you have time.
> These messages will continue to arrive twice a month until the fix is
> committed, as a reminder.
> Thanks,
