I notice the the Howl port's status is Deprecated with the reason given as
'Upstream disapear and distfile is no more available'. See:
However, Howl is still listed at freshmeat.net
http://freshmeat.net/projects/howl and the download link for the tar.gz on
that page still works. It in fact goes to the original developer's site at
http://www.porchdogsoft.com/download/howl-1.0.0.tar.gz, so it looks like
the only thing that's missing is the project information page itself at
I don't really know what this deprecated state means for the future of
this port, but as a small lightweight alternative to the only other
Zeroconf implementation (avahi) I think many people would appreciate it
still being available.
