Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1a7nb7, Package name: xmx-2.1a7nb7, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

XMX is a standalone utility for sharing an X Window System session on
multiple X displays. It allows users to see and interact with the
same applications at the same time from different locations. XMX
takes advantage of the networked nature of the X Window System by
acting as an intermediary between X clients and X servers. In this
way, XMX works with any X clients and any X servers, without the need
to modify either.

XMX provides a WYSIWIS (What You See Is What I See) environment; it
paints the same graphics on all participating displays. The shared
client applications appear to each participant in a virtual root
window which is subject to local window management. In this way, the
shared X session coexists with each user's private X session.

The X client applications which are shared via XMX are unaware that
they are being viewed or controlled by more than one user. Existing,
single-user X client applications may be shared using XMX without
recompilation, relinking or access to source code.

XMX is designed as an application sharing server. It provides both
the mechanism of application sharing and a way to control the shared
session from other programs. Like X, it leaves policy decisions to
application programs. In this way, XMX may be used as a component in
any of a variety of systems that require application sharing.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Drop dependency on libXp (from Imake)

* libXp was used by Xaw8, but it had been obsolated, and in pkgsrc,
  x11/libXaw/buildlink3.mk had been switched to pick up Xaw7 by default.
* With x11/xorg-cf-files, libXp was offered with XawClientLibs,
  but updated to 1.0.4, it was removed.
* And pkgsrc had been switched to use always xorg-cf-files and imake from pkgsrc,
  so all platforms should not require libXp from libXaw with Imake.

Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Rev the patchkit to remove a use of sys_nerr that tripped up the
Solaris build. PKGREVISION to 5 (not strictly necessary).
   2011-10-06 17:50:39 by David A. Holland | Files touched by this commit (87) | Package removed
Log message:
Roll all the pkgsrc patches (of which there were far too many, and
none pkgsrc-specific) into a distfile jumbo patch. Sort the PLIST.

While this is not supposed to change the resulting package, bump the
PKGREVISION as a precaution and to make sure the build with the patch
gets tested properly.
