    Well done guys !!

    a nice addition and a great tool for those who are tired to answer to newcomers when they ask if application xxxx is available in OpenBSD :)

      Hi,

      No its not based on sqlports, its based on code from pkgsrc.se, the changes was minor.

    what about to setup openbsd's alternative to pkgsrc's wip (work-in-progress) project?

    that would be great to involve more people in porting 3rd party apps on openbsd, but still to keep official ports clean and stable :)

      quite alot of pkgsrc's packages comes from wip so it is a very good way to get people to commit new stuff.

      What exactly is pkgsrc WIP? An unofficial ports collection?

      I'm not sure why'd that be necessary. If it's a matter of new ports being overlooked, maybe ports.openbsd.nu (or someone else) could put together some kind of automated submission tracker, like what used to be posted to the list each month.

      I've put together a shell script that almost does this, but it'd be much nicer to have it over there.

    Wouldn't it be nice if you could see the tags?

    Ok, while I'm not a complete newbie to OpenBSD, does this site's references to ports/packages relate to the current or patch branches?

    Or, am I completely missing something here?

    I did look around at a few things but I couldn't tell.

    Thanks!
