Description Graham Perrin 2022-01-05 02:52:52 UTC
<https://www.freshports.org/sysutils/fusefs-ntfs/#description> 

* the description might benefit from a general update, to mention 
  e.g. Windows 10 and so on

* WWW <https://www.tuxera.com/community/open-source-ntfs-3g/> is 
      outdated, redirects to 
      <https://www.tuxera.com/company/open-source/>.

With reference to <https://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/log/sysutils/fusefs-ntfs/pkg-descr> and changes of the WWW URL over time – Wayback Machine <https://web.archive.org/web/20150521042710/https://www.tuxera.com/community/open-source-ntfs-3g/> in particular, I assume that one of these two is now appropriate: 

      https://github.com/tuxera/ntfs-3g#readme
      https://github.com/tuxera/ntfs-3g

Thank you

A side note re: the WWW URL, I'm also aware of 
<https://sourceforge.net/projects/ntfs-3g/>. 

Glancing _very_ briefly at e.g. authors' names at <https://sourceforge.net/p/ntfs-3g/ntfs-3g/ci/edge/tree/>, I suspect that whilst the SourceForge area is comparable, GitHub is the better point of reference for source code etc..

(Here, I may be confused … memories of the catacombae area of SourceForge – from around 2010, when was still a user of Mac OS X; <https://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/2010/10/ntfs-3g-for-mac-os-x-2010102.html>.)
