The development of FreeBSD ports is done in Subversion nowadays. For the sake of compatibility a Subversion to CVS exporter is in place which has some limitations. For CVSup mirroring cvsup based on Ezm3 is used which breaks regularly especially on amd64 and with Clang and becomes more and more unmaintainable.
At the request of adamw@ (and others) we have setup a ports-announce@ mailing list to try distinguish the usual traffic on the ports@ list vs the announcements that seem to get lost in there.
You can subscribe at http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-ports-announce
It is intended, but not limited, to be a means of communicating portmgr@ announcements, Calls for Testing, plus other relevant information to be used by our committers and ports maintainer community.
It is our hope to keep this relatively low in traffic. It is a moderated list, under the auspices of portmgr@.
Please subscribe, sit back, and enjoy.
on behalf of portmgr@
