Thanks, I've tried what is suggested in
And in /pub/pkgsrc/2005Q2 I found following files:
-------r-- 13705564 Mar 23 23:46 pkgsrc-2005Q1.tar.bz2
-------r-- 18861491 Mar 23 23:46 pkgsrc-2005Q1.tar.gz

confusing, don't you think?
Also, some of your examples assume use of csh. Wouldn't a Bourne shell be
better? Is it a consistent policy in the guide?
Also, shouldn't the "Downloading tarballs" be listed as first? It is
probably much faster and friendlier to the mirrors, so it should be IMHO
