Please notice following FTP directories and/or files are either useless or 
confuse visitors:

  It confuses because people think this is the directory where you can browse 
versions by arch but not! It is full of very old content. I suggest removal or 

  This directory is empty. (Should it be empty?)

- There are many symlinks/hardlinks and they confuse visitors and hard to 
understand which one is correct -- although they generally point same content. 
I suggest a README note instead of symlinks. 

  For example: 

  Which one is the directory for compiled packages? If you use Firefox, you can 
not see symlinks and think about twice which one is correct one: > actually points to 
current-packages in same directory > /{arch} points to ../NetBSD/{arch} > actually target of above 
and {arch}/version points to ie; version_2009Q1

  Which one is directory of latest pkgsrc.tar.gz?

Well, i suggest unique content and readme files or little notes instead of
