I noticed that the "swatch" package was recently marked as unfetchable. I did some quick Googling around and stumbled upon what possible is the new URL/rename for the next version, but under the name "swatchdog" over on Sourceforge:


"swatchdog.pl started out as swatch, the "simple watchdog" for activity monitoring log files produced by UNIX's syslog facility. It has since been evolving into a utility that can monitor just about any type of log. The name has been changed to satisfy a request made by the old Swiss watch company."

The last version in ports was for 3.2.3, and this does appear to be the next release at version 3.2.4.

Just thought that I would give you a heads up as this would otherwise be an orphan port for us!
