Status: Closed Time to complete: 72 hrs Mentors: Gavin Atkinson, Glen Barber Tags: ports, documentation, FreeBSD, DocBook, SGML

Description of task

The FreeBSD ports collection contains a file called MOVED, which has "a list of (recently) moved or removed ports". This file is not documented in the FreeBSD porters handbook at the moment, but is nevertheless useful when i.e. ports get renamed. A section in the porters handbook should explain the structure and purpose of this file and when to use it. When adding these instructions to the porters handbook, the source code needs to be correctly formatted and must conform to our documentation source code style guidelines.

Task requires:


A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer. 
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
