We're in the freeze right now - you should have received mail
telling you that.

Having said that, it would seem smarter to rationalise our w3m
packages, and so I think you should do it.

And to everyone out there wondering what all these references to
"freezes" are, in order to get the tag on pkgsrc for 1.5.1, we've put
a freeze on all new functionality being added to pkgsrc. We hope that
we'll have met the exit criteria in a few weeks time.
