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:
read-edid is a pair of tools (originally by John Fremlin) for reading the EDID from a monitor. It should work with most monitors made since 1996, assuming the video card supports the standard read commands (most do). Two tools are provided: get-edid, which gets the raw EDID information from the monitor, and parse-edid, which turns the raw binary information into a xorg.conf-compatible monitor section (or xrandr-compatible modelines).

Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these
pkg-descr files.

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.

Add a port of read-edid utility, a pair of tools for reading the EDID from
a monitor.  It is mostly useful to read LCD matrix manufacturer and model.

WWW: http://www.polypux.org/projects/read-edid/

NB: TIMESTAMP line in distinfo should read as follows, but has to stay in
its current form due to a bug in the hook script:
TIMESTAMP (read-edid-3.0.2.tar.gz) = 1430271430
