# McQuah's CRUX ports
One of the strengths of the [CRUX distribution]( is its unapologetic stance on weeding out unmaintained packages, which keeps the core installation extremely minimal. Even the contrib collection is not safe from these purges, as evidenced by the disappearance of such venerable utilities like netcat and ncdu. Although these packages are recoverable via the gitweb history, the preferred option is to let their advocates take over the maintenance in personal overlays. Here is my overlay---a mix of onetime-official ports (no longer in the official repositories, or forked with my own customizations) and custom ports that never had an official version.
If you wish to use this repository, download the public key []( and **exactly one** of the following files: [jmq.git](jmq.git) or [jmq.httpup](jmq.httpup). __Do not use both.__ Place these files in **/etc/ports**. Then add the line **prtdir /usr/ports/jmq** to **/etc/prt-get.conf** (on my system I put it below /usr/ports/xorg but above /usr/ports/contrib, so that dups only override the official port if I explicitly run pkgmk in my port directory).
The build scripts in this collection mostly just copy the commands from other sources, including upstream, other CRUX ports, AUR, and VoidLinux. In most cases it would be too laborious to track down the original authors. But if you recognize your work and want your name on it, let me know!
A few ports will generate signature mismatches if you use a version of pkgmk that lacks the feature for renaming tarballs. Once CRUX 3.7 is released and widely adopted, these errors should be a thing of the past.
