I just wanted to give everyone who is using the port of ifstated a  
heads up for some changes that I am going to make in the near future.  
Please don't hesitate to post any questions or comments. All feedback  
is appreciated.

I recently received a patch from Artemiev Igor (see ports/111129 for  
all the details) that I am currently evaluating. I plan on merging  
his patch with files/patch-ifstated.c

In addition, I plan to change the VERSION from 20050505 to 3.7, since  
the code came from OpenBSD 3.7. When I make updates to the port in  
the future, the version number is going to be the version of OpenBSD  
it came from. Personally, I think that makes a little more sense then  
using a date.

Finally, I need your help:

1) If you are running ifstated and would be able to test an updated  
version ported from OpenBSD 4.1 in a non production environment,  
please contact me. I would like to make sure there is no regression  
since this is going to be somewhat of a major update.

2) If you can help host the 16K source tarball for version 3.7,  
please grab it from http://skreuzer.f2o.org/mirror/ifstated/ 
ifstated-3.7.tar.gz and send me the url and I will update MASTER_SITES
