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.
Should anybody feel like they could be the maintainer for any of thewe packages, please adjust.
+ move the patch digest/checksum values from files/patch-sum to distinfo
…ptp-1.0.2 No encryption (yet). Tested with one Microsoft PPTP server, YMMV?
