The DESCR files for www/communicator and www/navigator do not "describe".
I know that everyone knows what "netscape" is. But not everyone knows
which package is extremely bloated. What if I need a mail client? web editor?
Read the DESCR files for www/communicator and www/navigator --
does it tell you what it is?
Please consider adding further details to the Netscape package
Communicator is a WWW and ftp browser, mail client, newsgroup reader, web
page editor and address book organizer. The standalone browser is
available in pkgsrc as 'navigator'. This is the commercially distributed
version from Netscape. A freely available version of the Netscape browser
is available in pkgsrc as 'mozilla'.
Navigator is a WWW and ftp browser. (The Netscape mail client, newsgroup
reader, web page editor and address book organizer are available in pkgsrc
as 'communicator'.) This is the commercially distributed version from
Netscape. A freely available version of the Netscape browser is available
in pkgsrc as 'mozilla'.
Maybe it should also mention that it can do gopher also? (Anything else?)
Maybe the pkg/COMMENT files should be improved also?
