Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.77nb3, Package name: trn-4.77nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Trn is Threaded RN -- a newsreader that uses an article's references to
order the discussions in a very natural, reply-ordered sequence called
threads. Having the replies associated with their parent articles not
only makes following the discussion easier, but also makes it easy to back-
track and (re-)read a specific discussion from the beginning. Trn also
has a visual representation of the current thread in the upper right corner
of the header, which will give you a feel for how the discussion is going
and how the current article is related to the last one you read.

In addition, a thread selector makes it easy to browse through a large
group looking for interesting articles. You can even browse through the
articles you've already read and select the one(s) you wish to read again.
Other nice features include the extract commands for the source and binary
groups, thread-oriented kill directives, a better newgroup finding strategy,
and lots more.

Trn includes a program named "rn", which is backwards-compatible and
starts up trn in "non-threaded" mode.

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F
