Hello world,

As those of you who have been following the ports list may know, we
are changing the ports skeletons' layout in an effort to reduce the
number of small directories and significantly speed up operation on
the ports tree.  This should especially help operations such as "CVS
update", and will also reduce the number of i-nodes required to keep
the whole tree around.

The conversion will be done this weekend.  It will only take a day or
two.  There should be no functional changes that you can see after the
conversion (minus the bugs I may introduce, of course).

However, during the conversion, the tree will be in an inconsistent
state and attempts to use the tree will fail in most weird ways, so it
is recommended that you cvsup the tree on or before Friday and do not
cvsup again until I post an "all clear" message.
