Dear porters,

  This is just a reminder to please periodically check the list of
unfetchable distfiles at http://people.freebsd.org/~fenner/portsurvey/ .
In particular, the list of ports with no MAINTAINER with distfile
problems, which currently has 245 bad ports, is

http://people.freebsd.org/~fenner/portsurvey/ports@freebsd.org.html

Since no one is responsible for these ports, the problem won't get
fixed unless someone on this list takes the initiative.

  In addition, the list of all ports with any unfetchable distfile is

http://people.freebsd.org/~fenner/portsurvey/bad.html

if you don't mind coordinating your fixes with the port MAINTAINER.

Thanks for your help!

Bill "distfiles" Fenner
