FW: [XaraXtreme-dev] FreeBSD port for XaraLX 0.3r712 created

I assume this refers to the source tar archive download. Do we delete
those automatically Graeme? Can we keep rev712 around?

Not my call, but I can see that keeping n copies of a source repository
that changes every three hours is going to eat disk space. There is a
recommended release every week or two, and probably keeping a copy of
that source file should be enough (if people want to run the bleeding
edge version AND a port, they can work out how to use svn :-) )
