svn diff for x11-wm/compiz

This port is currently unfetchable. The svn diff
attached to this pr updates MASTER_SITES to correct
that problem.


releases.compiz.org is for all practical purposes, is
dead. It still lists a file index. But they can not be
retrieved. It appears that it's been that way since
~2012. As I'm interested in continuing this work. I've
performed a great deal of investigation. Current work
is conducted at
https://code.launchpad.net/compiz, well,
and while the source tree and history has moved there.
the 0.8.x branch is omitted. There appears to be some
dissension within the ranks. Using this new location
I was able to spin up a copy of Linux, and build and
install a copy of 0.9.12. I chose Linux as the test
bed because the tree already had everything needed in
the debian/ sub folder.
I'm now going to pursue a 0.9x branch for FreeBSD
working from:
(0.9.0). Unless the current compiz MAINTAINER is already
working on something like this. :-)

That's it!

OH, and to prove this patch works as intended:

make -DBATCH fetch
===>  License GPLv2+ LGPL21+ MIT accepted by the user
===>   compiz-0.8.8_9 depends on file: /usr/local/sbin/pkg - found
=> compiz-0.8.8.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/xorg/app.
=> Attempting to fetch https://BSDforge.com/projects/source/x11-wm/compiz/compiz-0.8.8.tar.bz2
compiz-0.8.8.tar.bz2                                  1097 kB   11 MBps    00s
===> Fetching all distfiles required by compiz-0.8.8_9 for building

All good with me.

Chris, if you want to take over maintainer for any of the compiz ports that I'm listed on please feel free... i really don't have the time to work on them lately :-(

(In reply to Daniel Austin from comment #3)
Hello, Dan.

Thanks for the offer! I'd be happy to. most
all the plugins involved are in compiz sub dirs
anyway. So it's not really any additional work. :-)

For the sake of expedience; I'll whip up a mega-diff
changing the MAINTAINER of them to me, for your
approval. I'll reference this pr(1).

Thanks again! :-)
