However there should be no need to, assuming you can put the distfiles anywhere else on the Internet and point the portfile to that location via the master_sites. Before you do so, ensure that the license agreement allows you to do so. And assuming it does, please work with the developers of the software to make it available via a direct link from their site.

this seems /way/ less useful than when we used to put distfiles into svn.

Giving committers a place to upload files (again) would be super useful.
