Project News for GNU-Darwin Distribution
I've been out of touch for a couple of weeks, but I'm back. In the
meantime, Apple released a new Darwin version for ppc.
For your convenience, here is a direct link.

This code is like the thing which should not be, but it is producing
fairly nice results. I'm using it to collate email forums, which makes
it even worse. Have a look.
Dave Winer and a large crowd of people will be blowing smoke out of
their ears. ;-} The code will be released GPL as soon as some poor soul
wants to look at it.

Apple USES DMCA
It has got to be a mistake, because any company so clueless
as to use the DMCA is total garbage. Perhaps Apple wants a return to their
bad old closed platform days, which caused the FSF boycott. This
manuver will certainly damage the relationship with the free software
community, and it is high time that we made our own DVD drivers.
As always, forward this message as you like.

.Mac service fees got you down? Check out Internet services at
GNU-Darwin. We offer full-featured email accounts, which include
web/POP3/IMAP email access for users who donate $15 or more. All of
our services are built and operated with free software.
In addition to email, we will be introducing new services for
contributors in the future, such as shell accounts, gnu-darwin.org
subdomains, web storage, etc. Contributing users will be assisting to
build a unique software distribution, which supports the dissemination
of knowledge, as well as the requirements of scientific research,
education, and software freedom.

GNU-Darwin: NetBSD pkgsrc
NetBSD has put some good work into making pkgsrc Darwin compatible, and GNU-Darwin has added some
refinements for greater compatibility with the Distribution.
Now you can have a ports and a pkgsrc directory for your Apple computer, or choose as you like.
