description="""
The lack of TLS support in default file fetch program (net/tnftp)
demands employing various tricks and hacks when creating packages.
Growing number of Internet sites that use HTTPS, and software
development communities around such sites (e.g. GitHub) demands,
consequently, support for fetching files via HTTPS.

The goal of this project is adding TLS support (HTTPS at least)
to devel/tnftp and NetBSD base ftp program.
