Description (last modified by jmpp@…)

i was really excited by the whole darwin ports thing (having had enough of fink for the next lifetime at least) but was almost dissuaded from installing it because the web search of available packages consistenly returned nothing (zip, nada, nout).

e.g. i wanted to install lftp but the online search said that it wasn't in the database. thank god i went through and installed anyway because it is actually included.

seems like a major flaw if you're trying to attract people to the system. you're under selling yourselves badly.

Fixed. abiword and abiword2 has the same 'name' - causing a PRIMARY KEY conflict.
