15    <p>The MacPorts Project is an open-source community initiative to design an easy-to-use system for compiling, installing,
16    and upgrading either command-line, X11 or Aqua based open-source software on the <a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/">
17    Mac OS X</a> operating system. To that end we provide the command-line driven MacPorts software package under a <a
18    href="http://opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php">BSD License</a>, and through it easy access to thousands of ports
19    that <a href="<?php print $guide_url . '#introduction'; ?>"> greatly simplify</a> the task of <a href="<?php print $guide_url
20    . '#using'; ?>">compiling and installing</a> open-source software on your Mac.</p>
21   
22    <p>We provide a single software tree that attempts to track the latest release of every software title (port) we distribute,
23    without splitting them into &#8220;stable&#8221; Vs. &#8220;unstable&#8221; branches, targetting mainly the current Mac OS
24    X release (10.6, A.K.A Snow Leopard) and the immediately previous one (10.5, A.K.A. Leopard). There are currently <a href="ports.php">
25    <b><?php print $portsdb_info['num_ports']; ?></b> ports</a> in our tree, distributed among <?php print $portsdb_info['num_categories']; ?>
26    different categories, and more are being added on a regular basis.</p>
