Description nugget 2005-07-09 15:30:16 UTC
	wmnetselect is vestigial software.  There is no known source for the
	build tarballs and the author has dropped off the net.  Additionally,
	its function has not been useful or relevant to FreeBSD users for
	many years.  Improvements in browser facilities (Firefox and Mozilla)
	as well as advances in window manager and desktop environment 
	capabilities have long ago rendered wmnetselect useless.  The port
	should simply be removed.  It can't be installed presently and nobody
	will miss it.


Remove the wmnetselect port from the ports tree.
How-To-Repeat: 	Devise a creative reason to care about wmnetselect and then
	attempt to install it from ports.
