	We already have a pkgsrc/README which _should_ cover those
	details - or refer to Packages.txt and packages(7) as appropriate.
	If you find anything missing - please submit a patch! :)

	I'm changing my mind here and suggesting it belongs better with
	pkg-CHANGES (as suggested by Hubert). Of course I'd prefer to
	see both pkg-CHANGES and pkg-TODO moved to pkgsrc, but I'd be
