Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.4, Package name: fs-kit-0.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Welcome to the File System Construction Kit! This is a software
package that accompanies the book, Practical File System Design, which
Dominic Giampaolo wrote and is published by Morgan Kaufmann (ISBN

This package is a very simple framework in which you can experiment
with a working (but simple) file system implementation. The framework
is designed so that you can go in and modify one part of it, such as
how the used and free disk blocks are managed, and not have to touch
the rest of the file system. And because the package creates its file
system inside of a normal file on your hard disk, you don't have to
have a spare disk or require special (root) privileges to run the
program. The goal is that this package should provide a convenient
test bed for trying out new file system ideas without having to go
through the pain and difficulty of creating a real kernel based file
system. The API is generic enough however that after an you debug
your implementation within this framework it could be moved to a real
kernel based file system for the BeOS or a Unix like operating system.

sysutils: Remove SHA1 hashes for distfiles
   2020-05-20 08:09:10 by Roland Illig | Files touched by this commit (52)
Log message:
mark packages that fail with -Werror=char-subscripts

These packages are susceptible to bugs when confronted with non-ASCII

See https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=94182.

It takes some time to analyze and fix these individually, therefore they
are only marked as "needs work".

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for sysutils category

Problems found with existing digests:
	Package memconf distfile memconf-2.16/memconf.gz
	b6f4b736cac388dddc5070670351cf7262aba048 [recorded]
	95748686a5ad8144232f4d4abc9bf052721a196f [calculated]

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package dc-tools: missing distfile dc-tools/abs0-dc-burn-netbsd-1.5-0-gae55ec9
	Package ipw-firmware: missing distfile ipw2100-fw-1.2.tgz
	Package iwi-firmware: missing distfile ipw2200-fw-2.3.tgz
	Package nvnet: missing distfile nvnet-netbsd-src-20050620.tgz
	Package syslog-ng: missing distfile syslog-ng-3.7.2.tar.gz

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.
