    completions from util-linux. Thanks to ill323 on LQ for the heads-up.
  • extra/tigervnc/tigervnc-1.8.0-arm-3.txz
    Rebuilt against xorg-server-1.19.5.

    Alan Hicks, Mario Preksavec, and /dev/rob0 for assistance.
  • extra/sendmail/sendmail-8.15.2-arm-1.txz
    Moved here from the N series. This is still a solid choice for an MTA, and
    probably the most flexible (although it can be difficult to configure - it
    has been said that the M4 macro language resembles line noise).
    Thanks to Eric Allman and everyone at Sendmail for all the years of work.
