Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.11, Package name: ish-1.11, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

ish is a format to encode binary files to text file, or decode text
files into binary file. ish has strong error correction/detection
functionality using CRC and checksum.
This format is popular in Japanese BBS'es.

To non-Japanese people:
To produce non-Japanese text a user should use "-s7" option.
Other options such as "-ss" may produce Japanese text.
To Japanese people:
To use ish over NetNews newsgroups (such as fj.*), use "-s7" option.
Use of "-ss" will not give you the optimal performance.
"-ss" option is just for BBSes that use Shift-JIS as their native
Japanese encoding.

Log message:
Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.

The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \ 
"pkgsrc-users" is
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list).  Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't
developers.
