Please note that the pkgsrc cvs repository is now frozen (for a
maximum of 2 weeks) in preparation for the pkgsrc-2004Q4 branch.  At
the end of the freeze, I'll send further mail.  Please note that,
until we have a new branch, maintenance will continue on the existing
pkgsrc-2004Q3 branch.
The freeze means that no new packages should be committed, and we'll  
be working on bringing the unclosed PR count down, and on fixing some
of the broken packages (as shown by the results and analyses of same
on the pkgsrc-bulk mailing list).
Thanks for your understanding,

On behalf of the pkgsrc team
