Pro ty, co nesleduji cizojazycne mailinglisty, jako treba freebsd-ports, 
radeji preposilam nasledujici upozorneni, ze v pristich dnech bude 
probihat rada commitu okolo png, curl, x11, gnome, kde4.

Takze pokud nekdo neni zrovna "tester", tak by na tech par dnu mel 
odlozit aktualizace ports tree.

As announced before, a few big commits, that touch some thousands ports 
are being done: png, curl, x11, gnome, kde4. The target ETA is 6-7 April.

The first one was done, update of graphics/png (including a shared lib 
version bump), with about 5000 ports affected.

We do _NOT_ recommend updating ports until this commits are all done, 
and the problems are fixed, except if you want to help testing / fixing.

Before reporting failures, please take a look at ports@ list, and 
to find out if the problem hasn't already been reported or even fixed. 
We also have two incremental builds on Pointy to catch the problems.
