Eawpats has been superceeded by FreePats. Eawpats was in large part
derived from the early 1990's MIDIA package for SGI. Unbeknowst to me at
the time, the majority of the MIDIA patches were directly derived from the
commercial Gravis Ultrasound patch set. When I eventually discovered
this, I removed all of the Gravis copyrighted patches (about half of
the total) from the collection and redistribution of Eawpats was
discontinued. The remainder was continued on as Freepats, but is lacking
many instruments, especially the drums :(
audio/libac3 -- newer version in audio/liba52.
games/xnibbles -- Not maintained since 1999, rewritten into gnibbles.
misc/fooseti misc/setiathome -- obsoleted by (and not compatible with) BOIN=
