Summary of Changes to the Packages Collection in February 2005

By my calculations, at the end of February 2005, there were 5377
packages in the Packages Collection, up from 5331 the previous month,
a rise of 46.

Due to the problems discovered in the SHA1 algorithm - see

the pkgsrc infrastructure has been changed to use multiple digest
algorithms for distfiles and distpatches, and all the distinfo files
in pkgsrc have been updated, where possible, to use multiple checksums.

Notable additions to the Packages Collection include:  ap2-auth-ldap,
beacon, blogbench, blur6ex, boost-build, boost-docs, boost-headers,
boost-libs, bsflite, cisco-mibs, courier-authlib, distmp3, exiv2,

The Package of the Month award has a Germanic feel to it, and jointly
goes to:

+ pkgsrc/math/R, nominated by Hubert Feyrer, who had to do some
statistical analysis, and first decided to do it in Perl.  When he had
recovered, and discovered R, he found it superior.  Hubert recommends
that you install, run "R", then enter "demo()", "demo(graphics)",
"demo(image)" and so on, and

+ pkgsrc/mail/mhonarc, nominated by Matthias Scheler, who says:  "It
took me only a few minutes including installation and documentation
reading to convert a mailing list archive into a web page and to setup
a live feed for updating that web page."

Finally, in March we will be branching pkgsrc again for the
pkgsrc-2005Q1 branch, and I'd just like to take this opportunity to
thank the pkgsrc release engineering team, Lubomir Sedlacik and Soren
Jacobsen, for managing the existing branch so well, especially in the
face of all those squid updates.
