pkgsrc-wip-jp Japanese pkgsrc-wip pkgsrc-wip kr Korean pkgsrc-wip Open BSD Ports WIP Similar project for Open BSD ports This project was hosted for 12 years on Sourceforge.
It began as a list of the changes that I made for xterm, using the notes that I added when submitting a patch.
You should subscribe to the tech-pkg mailing lists.
You can ask for questions about packaging here, or for comments and import to pkgsrc, if you think a package is finished.
amavisd-new is a high-performance interface between mailer (MTA) and content checkers: virus scanners, and/or Spam Assassin.
It is written in Perl for maintainability, without paying a significant price for speed.
This project already assumes you know what pkgsrc is and how to use it, so if you don't, please read the reference and use it. If you are completely new to git or VCS, gittutorial(7) and gittutorial-2(7) are good introductions to it.
Additionally, there is the pkgsrc-wip-changes mailing list.
Its subscribers receive a mail message for every commit to the pkgsrc-wip repository. If you're interested in committing packages (and not only testing), send mail to Thomas Klausner with your public SSH key, suggested user name and perhaps ideas for your first packages.
amavisd-new grew out of amavisd(-snapshot) (which in turn is a daemonized version of amavis-perl), but through five years of development turned into a separate product, hardly resembling its origin.
The code is several times the size of its predecessor, yet faster in throughput, richer in features, compliant to standards, includes optional support for spam detection, and makes virus scanning optional and easier to adjust/extend.
pkgsrc-wip (work in progress) is a project to get more people actively involved with creating packages for pkgsrc, a portable packaging system coming from Net BSD.
