I've successfully used www.opencsw.org ever since the BIG break with
blastwave several years ago.

> pretty old.  Emacs is old. Their Samba is old, there is no spidermonkey
> package, etc.  No wiki updates in over a year.  The front page says 332
> package updates in the last month, but the link says "There are no
> recently released software packages to report at this time."
> So, what are other people using?  Portage? pkgsrc?  Build everything

> Irix?
