I was going to send-pr some patches to upgrade sun-jre13 to the latest
release, but it seems that it is no longer possible to get the
distfile via automatic downloading. At least, I can't seem to get at
this file:


without manually accepting the license. Doing so gives me a "download
ticket", which seems to expire quite quickly. For reference, the
NetBSD pkgsrc is currently at version "1_3_1_02", and is still
available for automatic download.

Anyone know more about this?

Kind regards,

P.S. I had a quick glance at the FreeBSD package, and it seems that
they require manual download of the distfile. :-(
