System: NetBSD 1.4.2 NetBSD 1.4.2 (SQUEEZED) #3: Sun Aug 13 06:51:03 GMT 2000 jimd@amiga1.jim.dutton:/usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/compile/SQUEEZED amiga

	pkg Makefiles contain a line supposedly identifying the maintainer of
	the specific package. It is assumed that the e-mail address given,
	(ie; "") is the responsible party to whom package
	questions, requests, or updates should be submitted to.

	Apparently, this is not the case, and "send-pr" is supposed to be used
	to make submissions to the appropriate "package maintainer".

	The instructions in the Makefile do not make this clear. If "send-pr"
	is the preferred/only acceptable means to submit questions, requests,
	maintenance (suggestions) for a package, then the appropriate line
	in the Makefile that identifies the "package maintainer" should be
	modified to reflect this.

	Correct all package Makefiles to specify "send-pr" instead of
	"" where the "package maintainer" is listed.
