That will certainly be a big help. When we got rid of the pkg/ and patches/ directories I begged Satoshi to go farther and put patches in main port directory and get rid of pkg/COMMENT. That was back when we hit 3000 ports -- I guess people didn't want to accept we would hit 8000 in only a few years. Of course why we don't just put "COMMENT=blah" in the ports's Makefile To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
