The distfile wanted by the mailman pkg does not exist anywhere.
Initially I thought this might be one of those "import the
package only to find that the maintainers have deleted the
distfile and replaced it with a newer one the next day" events
that happen every now and then (especially as there have been
reports of a security problem in mailman recently).
But here, that doesn't seem to be the case. This looks to be
the initial version of mailman, its DISTNAME in the Makefile
yet the distinfo file (imported at the same time) has information
The 2.0.12 files exist (and all previous versions), I see no
sign of 2.0.13 anywhere.
By inspection. Or attempt to make (or just "make fetch") the
Assuming that there is no 2.0.13 anywhere yet, then s/13/12/
in the DISTNAME in Makefile.
Also, it would be nice if when the copyright doesn't prohibit
it, if the distfiles could be fetched to ftp.netbsd.org before
packages are imported/upgrqaded. Then we'd much more rarely
get the "distfile removed by maintainer" problem, as the copy
at ftp.netbsd.org would be there, whatever the maintainers do...
