Changes since 1.1: +4 -4 lines

Full rewrite of the monotone-server package:

- Delete the monotone-server-init script.

- Modify the monotone rc.d(8) script to provide extra commands such as
  'init', 'genkey' and 'read' to manipulate the server.  These are not
  interactive, but allow the same level of customization as the previous
  script.  Inspired by how the monotone init.d script from Fedora works.

- Delete the need of an rc.conf script in the pkg_sysconfdir of this
  package.  The settings previously stored there are now automatically
  discovered.

- Fully automated creation of a server key: no more need to create a
  passphrase by hand, memorize it, and stick it on a configuration file
  to never look at it again.

- The log file is now placed where it belongs: in varbase/log.

- Addition of a monotone-server(7) manpage explaining the whole setup
  process and pointers to the server files.

Note: upgrading from a previous version of the package will require manual
intervention if the rc.d script in /etc/rc.d is replaced.  However, I
really doubt anyone is using this package so I didn't want to go through
the trouble of implementing a migration procedure.  I've added a note to
the MESSAGE, though, asking users to contact me if required.

Monotone is a free distributed version control system.  It provides a
simple, single-file transactional version store, with fully disconnected
operation and an efficient peer-to-peer synchronization protocol.  It
understands history-sensitive merging, lightweight branches, integrated
code review and 3rd party testing.  It uses cryptographic version naming
and client-side RSA certificates.  It has good internationalization
support, has no external dependencies, runs on NetBSD, Linux, Solaris,
OSX and Windows (among others), and is licensed under the GNU GPL.

This package provides the necessary stuff to configure a dedicated Monotone
server.  The package will create a dedicated user/group account to run the
server, will install a set of configuration files and will guide you, through
an rc.d script, to initialize the database and populate it.
