27The DarwinPorts project aims to provide a large amount of software ports that make it easy to install freely available software on a Darwin system.  For more information, please read the <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/darwinports/en/faq.php">FAQ</a>.  For a tutorial on writing a Portfile, please read the <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/darwinports/en/portfileHOWTO.php">Portfile HOWTO</a>.

30The <a href="http://darwinports.gene-hacker.net/docs/guide/">DarwinPorts User Guide</a> is an excellent reference on DarwinPorts syntax and concepts.  (Note it is a work in progress, so please feel free to make suggestions and report bugs in the doc component of the DarwinPorts <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/bugzilla/">Bugzilla</a> product.)

33<p><strong>Project Status</strong></p>
34
35<p>
36A number of ports are done and the system is reasonably usable as
37a <i>BETA</i> for anyone who's interested. 
38You can search a list of <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/darwinports/en/ports.php">available software</a> here.
39</p>
40<p>
41A functional Cocoa-based GUI for DarwinPorts, DarwinPorts.app, is available and under active development. <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/darwinports/images/dp-cocoa.jpg">Screenshot.</a>
42</p>
43<p>
44Bug reports and feature requests should be submitted to <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/bugzilla/">Bugzilla</a>.

47<p><strong>Getting the project from CVS</strong></p>
48
49<p>
50Use the following commands to get DarwinPorts from the OpenDarwin CVS server (required for DarwinPorts.app):
51</p>
52
53<p>
54<pre>
55cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od login
56cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od co -P darwinports
57</pre>
58
59<p>
60Use the following commands to get DarwinPorts.app from the OpenDarwin CVS server:
61</p>
62
63<p>
64<pre>
65cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od login
66cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od co -P dp-cocoa
67</pre>
68
69When the server asks you for a password you can simply hit return; the password is empty.
70The CVS repository can be browsed through <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/proj/darwinports/">CVSweb</a>.

75<p>The <a
76href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/darwinports">darwinports
77mailing list</a> is open to all and is where most architectural and
78feature discussions are held.  Those wishing to see the cvs commit
79logs which detail the change-by-change progress of the project can
80also subscribe to the <a
81href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/cvs-darwinports-all">cvs-darwinports-all</a>
82mailing list.</p>

85href="http://freenode.net/">open projects network</a> is generally
86where we hang out.</p>
87
88<p><strong>Joining the project </strong></p>

92</p>
