> Hello OpenCSW users,

> the old URL is now a HTTP redirection to the pkgutil page.

> The old tool is still available from the package catalog, but it isn't

> in the future.
> Those who care about pkg-get are encouraged to look for a new

> If you have any further questions, feel free to ask, either here, or

This would be because you forced Phil Brown out the door.
I have my differences with Phil Brown but it must be said
he sure as hell knew how to do software correctly.

You guys never cease to amaze me at your methods.
