    Changes in release 2.5.0p1
    * Add the 'amtape update' command.
    Changes in release 2.5.0
    * Communication security/authentication: Kerberos 4/5, OpenSSH
    * Data security: Symmetric/Assymetric encrytion algorithms (aesutil
      and gpg encryption),  Encryption can be done on server or client,
      Custom encryption utilities can be used.
    * Compression: Ability to add custom compression tools. This is a
      really useful feature especially since it can specified for a DLE.  You
      can use different compression algorithm for images, binaries, ascii files
      and so on.
    * Dump images spanning multiple media volumes - Dump images are no
      longer restricted to a single media volume (tape or vtape).  Data restoration
      can be done using amrecover and amfetchdump commands.
    * Auto tape labelling - This optional feature is good for disk backups.
    Change in release 2.4.5
    * new displayunit global option to select the unit use to display number
      k=kilo, m=mega, g=giga, t=tera.

    Change in release 2.4.5b1
    * holding disk disk use timestamped directory.
    * autoflush flush today's dump.
    * new bumppercent global option, this should improve bumping criteria,
      the bumpsize is set to a fixed value which can be adequate for small
      and large disk.
    * bumpsize, bumppercent, bumpdays and bumpmult can be in a dumptype.
    * calcsize support include and exclude like gnutar.
    * new 'estimate' dumptype option to select estimate type:
        CLIENT: estimate by the dumping program.
        CALCSIZE: estimate by the calcsize program, a lot faster but less acurate.
        SERVER: estimate based on statistic from previous run, take second but
                can be wrong on the estimate size.

    Now, the easy way to say that a package installs no files is to just

    Modify plist/ so that if the PLIST files are missing and no

  1. Point MAINTAINER to in the case where no

    jlam authored
    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
