Didn’t realize that a fetchmail implementation I was using was actually *not* using SSL for a month. I had installed security/ca_root_nss but FreeBSD doesn’t assume that you want to use the certificates in this package. I don’t understand it, but whatever.
So, add this to your fetchmailrc to actually use the certificate authorities in there and really do SSL to your gmail account:
Kris has made the update to 10.1 live on the servers. To upgrade to 10.1 you can simply open the update GUI and start the update from there. You will notice the update takes a little longer to complete, but the good news is it runs in the background and there are no unexpected resets :).
If you are on the EDGE repo you most likely have the newest broken version of pkg which will need to be fixed before upgrading. To fix pkg:
% pkg install –f pkg
After that you should be in business. Please send us your feedback and / or any questions!

I discovered recently that net-im/finch can indeed join password protected IRC channels even though the channel add dialogue box doesn’t support it.
Add an IRC chat room that requires a password to your buddy list.
Exit out of finch and edit ~/.purple/blist.xml
Find the chat room you just added:
<chat proto=’prpl-irc’ account=’[email protected]’>
<setting name=’gnt-autojoin’ type=’bool’>1</setting>
Simply add the password line after the channel name component:
Restart finch and you will now be able to auto-join the IRC channel.
Note that the password for this IRC channel is now in PLAIN TEXT in a file in your home directory. So, ensure that you are doing this somewhere trustworthy.
