Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Description:
This is version 6.1 of Rdist from USC. It is based on rdist from 4.3BSD (classic). It includes all fixes for all bugs known to the CSRG Berkeley folks. It has been running at USC and numerous other sites for some time now on a wide variety of platforms. This version of rdist is not directly compatible with rdist distributed with 4.3BSD and subsequent vendor releases, but does indirectly provide full backward compatibility. This version of rdist does not need to be setuid "root" at all. Rdist now uses the rsh(1c) [remote command] program to make connections to remote hosts, instead of making the connection directly. This eliminates the need to be run as "root". Many thanks to Chris Siebenmann <cks@utcc.utoronto.ca> and John DiMarco <jdd@cdf.toronto.edu> who came up with an rsh version of rcmd() that makes this possible.

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2024-03-19
    Affects: users of net/rdist6
    Author: cy@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      As of 52032b3d50c0 net/rdist6 will install its binary named rdist instead
      of rdist6. Base FreeBSD no longer has its own rdist binary. Therefore
      there is no need to rename the rdist6 binary to rdist6 to avoid confusion.
      The historical and default name of the rdist binary is "rdist".

net/rdist6: Rename the binary from rdist6 to rdist

Years ago FreeBSD base had its own /usr/bin/rdist. To avoid confusion
and allow users to use rdist6 without PATH or alias gymnastics the
binary was renamed to rdist6. FreeBSD no longer maintains its own
rdist so we can revert back from rdist6 to rdist ourselves.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.
