Hello maintainers,

pkg-get[1], the original package installation tool, is now deprecated.  The
development is now focused on pkgutil[2].  The bootstrap area of the
website[3] no longer shows the choice between pkg-get and pkgutil; the old
URL is now a HTTP redirection to the pkgutil page.

> curl -s -I http://www.opencsw.org/get-it/pkg-get/ | gegrep
HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://www.opencsw.org/get-it/pkgutil/

The old tool is still available from the package catalog, but it isn't
supported and there are no guarantees that it will receive any updates in
the future.

Those who care about pkg-get are encouraged to look for a new maintainer for
the package.
