        Prince of Songkla University
System: NetBSD 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 
(GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
        The MASTER_SITE forwww.plone3 (and www/plone25) ic
        surrently redirecting the download URL to a https://
        server (why they believe https is needed for this I
        am not sure).

        The standard file fetcher (for NetBSD 3 anyway) (ie: ftp)
        does not handle https:// URLs so fails to fetch the file.

        Because of this (I assume), there's no copy on

        Move the distfiles out of the way, if you have them already
        and try "make fetch" (or make checksum) in either www/plone3
        or www/plone25

        Nothing will be fetched.

        Easy workaround is simply to manaually fetch the distfiles
        using something that does understand https:// (does wget??)
        I just used my browser...

        For pkgsrc, perhaps the solution is for someone to mnually put
        copies of the distfiles on - then perhaps also
        remove the current MASTER_SITE (or just leave it ane allow that
        fetch to fail, after all, one day, either ftp might handle
        https:// or the master site might switch back to ordinary http:/.
        or even better, ftp://)
