ppl source package

It would appear that BUGSENG is no longer providing source packages for ppl, why they are providing is git and rsync checkouts. The following are their checkout protocol uses:

git clone git://


rsync --archive --delete --checksum \ --compress rsync:// \ /mnt/clfs/sources/work/ppl-git-co

rsync failes with the following output.

clfs:/mnt/clfs/sources$ rsync --archive --delete --checksum --compress rsync:// /mnt/clfs/sources/work/ppl-git-co @ERROR: Unknown module 'ppl-git' rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1516) [Receiver=3.0.9] clfs:/mnt/clfs/sources$

ppl co from git contains no configure or autogen scripts

Fixed (somewhat). I used my host operating system (FreeBSD-8.2) to fetch the package from this location:

[root@blackdragon /usr/ports/devel/ppl]# make fetch ===> License check disabled, port has not defined LICENSE => ppl-0.11.2.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/. => Attempting to fetch ppl-0.11.2.tar.gz 100% of 13 MB 237 kBps 00m00s [root@blackdragon /usr/ports/devel/ppl]# is still an invalid location.

Sorry for the noise :D

I just fixed this before I even saw the ticket. I used an ftp download link provided on the website (just click on the word "Download" rather than the drop-down menu).
