+    <p>With the exception of systems relating to the building and testing
+      of packages, all infrastructure has now been brought
+      back online.  A full audit of the third party package build
+      infrastructure code ("pointyhat") and package testing infrastructure
+      ("redports") continues, and neither system will be brought back
+      online until audits are complete.</p>
+    <p>As a result, FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE will be published with only
+      minimal i386 and amd64 (x86_64) precompiled package sets available,
+      and with no packages available for other architectures.  This
+      package set will be available on the DVD image, and are sufficient
+      to install either the GNOME or the KDE desktop environment.  For any
+      other uses, or for any packages not included on the CD, either
+      using the most recently available -stable package collection or
+      compiling ports from the ports tree are recommended.  Packages
+      for 9.1-RELEASE will be made available at a later date.  Instructions
+      for obtaining and updating the ports tree can be found in the
+      <a href="/doc/handbook/ports-using.html">
+        FreeBSD Handbook</a>.</p>
+    <p>Unless there are any other major changes, this is planned to be
+      the last status update to this page.  An email will be sent to
+      the <a href="">
+	FreeBSD announcements mailing list</a> when the package build 
+      infrastructure is online and packages are once again available.</p>
