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/faq.php">FAQ</a>.  For a tutorial on writing a Portfile, please read the <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/darwinports/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/ports.php">available software</a> here.
39</p>
40<p>
41Bug reports and feature requests should be submitted to <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/bugzilla/">Bugzilla</a>.

44<p><strong>Getting the project from CVS</strong></p>
45
46<p>
47Use the following commands to get the project from the OpenDarwin CVS server:
48</p>
49
50<p>
51<pre>
52cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od login
53cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.opendarwin.org:/Volumes/src/cvs/od co -P darwinports
54</pre>
55
56When the server asks you for a password you can simply hit return; the password is empty.
57</p>

59<p><strong>Project mailing lists and IRC channels</strong></p>
60
61<p>The <a
62href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/darwinports">darwinports
63mailing list</a> is open to all and is where most architectural and
64feature discussions are held.  Those wishing to see the cvs commit
65logs which detail the change-by-change progress of the project can
66also subscribe to the <a
67href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/cvs-darwinports-all">cvs-darwinports-all</a>
68mailing list.</p>
69
70<p>For more real-time discussion, the #opendarwin channel on the <a
71href="http://freenode.net/">open projects network</a> is generally
72where we hang out.</p>
73
74<p><strong>Joining the project </strong></p>
