Even though this is a revival of an existing port, I think the right thing would be a patch against the last version, rather than a new shar.

Also even for re-added ports, IIUC the requirement that maintainer != ports@FreeBSD.org still applies.
Comment 2 Li-Wen Hsu freebsd_committer 2020-07-01 13:47:00 UTC
Radim: do you want to be the maintainer of this port?

Comment 5 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2021-04-12 09:18:32 UTC
Do we really want to import something that hasn't been touched upstream in 15+ years? At least import fixes from Debian although although this is really on life support (no longer in repos other than Debian's more or less looking at repology.org

Comment 6 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2021-04-12 09:37:06 UTC
Having a quick look it looks like there are a few projects still fairly active and more recent. https://github.com/erco77/newsd or https://github.com/miquels/nntp-rs
Comment 7 Radim Kolar 2021-04-12 10:00:27 UTC
Debian has just makefile patch. I will take a look on these projects. This one sw works better then leafnode.

Hi Radim,
Did you ever get around looking at the other projects?
