Description mike 2018-04-27 07:27:12 UTC
A small number of entries in /usr/ports/UPDATING do not have a colon after the date in the heading. This is hurting the ability of FreshPorts to ascertain where a given entry begins and ends.

To see the affected entries:

egrep '^[0-9]+$' /usr/ports/UPDATING

It can be fixed easily enough:

sed -r 's#(^[0-9]+)$#\1:#' /usr/ports/UPDATING > /usr/ports/UPDATING.new
