[FreeBSD-Ports-Announce] Requirements for ports with 'LEGAL' concerns

Eitan Adler-4
If your port falls into any of the following categories

- defines RESTRICTED
- defines NO_CDROM
- defines NO_PACKAGE
- has a very restrictive license (not OSI approved)
- has special licensing just for FreeBSD
- has issues with patents
- any other concern which is not currently covered by our LICENSE framework

please make sure of the following things

(a) the origin listed in LEGAL matches the port origin *exactly* -
there should be no wildcards.  Please duplicate listings if required.
(b) the output of 'make -VLEGAL' matches the third column of LEGAL *exactly*

If you have any questions please feel to email ports@.
