Description Romain Tartière freebsd_committer 2019-03-15 22:54:54 UTC
Hello!

While looking for ports without a maintainer, I saw that lang/phantomjs was still in the ports tree while being discontinued one year ago and having a lot of problems (we used it at $WORK and had to switch to chrome / firefox headless some time ago).

I though it was worth deprecating it:
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=495806

However, I failed at seeing that it had ports depending on it.  You will probably want to:
  - deprecate www/p5-WWW-Mechanize-PhantomJS if it is not actively worked on and set the same deprecation date on this port; or
  - revert my change (and maybe take maintainership of lang/phantomjs?)

Sorry for the late heads-up!
