I already contacted them and they corrected the link, thanks for the
On a related note, given that we don't really have useful and
understandable per port pages, I had to provide them with a link to
the Portfile through the trac browser, which in my opinion is a
rather lame solution (though better than linking to
darwinports.com ;-). In thinking our website redesign in parallel
threads, this is something we should definitely take into account,
some kind of a template page that can be dynamically rendered for
every port with information similar to that of "port info" and
instructions on how to install it. And yes, I do realize this is
something we'd be more or less copying off darwinports.com, shame on
us! But, first off, no one ever said we can't have our shot at
getting back ;-) And second, the unfortunate popularity of that page
has proven that such a per-port-page approach is successful, so we
might as well implement it too.
