NetBSD zaphod 1.5 NetBSD 1.5 (GENERIC) #1: Sun Nov 19 21:42:11 MET 2000 fvdl@sushi:/work/trees/netbsd-1-5/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
MASTER_SITES lists http://www.cs.csubak.edu/~dgriffi/frotz/files/ for
downloading the tarball. In the README I asked that the pkgsrc people
not do that. That directory is there for distributing betas and in
case there's a problem with the Interactive Fiction Archive
(ftp.ifarchive.org) and its mirrors.
Listing an ftp site for a homepage seems like an accidental leftover
from before I took over the unix port of Frotz. GMD has shut down as
an official entity and the contents ftp.gmd.de will only be around as
long as someone doesn't have the urge to reclaim disk space.
In the Makefile for the Frotz package, MASTER_SITES and HOMEPAGE are
out of date. In particular, gmd.de has shut down as an official entity.
However, ftp.gmd.de and the files on it still exist until someone
decides to reclaim some hard drive space. Homepage layout has changed.
Look at the pkgsrc Makefile for games/frotz
