Update proposed ports category, interantionalization

with one comment

A brief in discussion on the freebsd-ports thread convinced me to change my proposal from i18n to internationalization, http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2009-June/055475.html

I will await further potential feedback, Friday will mark one week since I made the original post. At that time, I will get my act together and take my proposal to portmgr@.

Stay tuned.

Proposed ports category, i18n

with one comment

Just because life is not complicated enough, I opened up a can of worms by proposing a new ports category for the internationalisation/localisation effort.

It is my hopes to move all the *i18n* and *l10n* ports out of the misc category to their new home.

Please, please, please, if you have an opinion, pro or con to this proposal, check out my original post, http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2009-June/055412.html
and reply to it via the ports@ mailing list.

KDE4 testing is ongoing for FreeBSD

without comments

Just to reiterate a posting by miwi,http://miwi.bsdcrew.de/2009/06/fresh-blood-for-kde-freebsd-team/, we have added two more members to the FreeBSD KDE team, newly minted Ports Committer Kris Moore of PCBSD, and Dima “Red Fox” Panov.

We have been working diligently to keep to the KDE beta schedule. The work we do is being stored in a repository, http://websvn.pcbsd.org, for inclusion to the FreeBSD Ports tree.

If you are interested in testing, you can read more at http://freebsd.kde.org

I finally managed to get Citrix 11 committed to the repository as net/citrix_xenapp. The Citrix 10 client will be left as net/citrix_ica for a little while yet.

Please be aware that the Xen App client requires
