NetBSD's pkgsrc is being frozen as of today, to prepare a stable, error
free version of pkgsrc and a good set of binary packages for 1.5.

Please do not import any new packages or do major updates, esp. if many
packages depend on the pkg in question. If you think you need to make an
exception, check back with

There are a lot of open pkg-related problem reports, please see The next few weeks should
give us an opportunito to close as much of these as possible.

I'll be doing bulk builds, the latest results for i386 will can be found
Testing and bugfixes for non-i386 will be especially appreciated!

The freeze will end on Sep 20th.
