Description Chris Petrik 2009-06-28 20:30:06 UTC
The kvirc-devel ports lacks in updates, and it is very old still in the 3.2.x release.

Maintainer does not reply to emails etc..

I myself don't see the need for a -devel port of kvirc or else I would of requested change of maintainer ship to myself.

Comment 3 Armin Pirkovitsch 2009-06-29 07:39:25 UTC
Until recently there was no kvirc development version - the release
always was the most current version.
However, since 11th of June there is a 4.0 devel version - on the webpage
it says SVN snapshot but i haven't found any official snapshot archives
to use for a port.

Any suggestions how to proceed?
Comment 4 Chris Petrik 2009-06-29 20:11:22 UTC

I have seen this port lag behind, you could of updated it with the 
3.4.2rc's or 3.4.0 etc.. You can also use SVN to check out the current 
4.0, it is a -devel port. 3.2.6 is dated back to 2006.

I myself don't see the need for this port if it wont be updated. I am 
willing to work will you if you need help getting the port to work using 

if you care to discuss this over email i'm all ears :)

Another idea would be to check the latest from SVN, tar it up and put it 
on a site, and add in the site as mastersite.

every couple of days update the devel branch and make sure it 
compiles/installs/deinstalls. it's devel so it will be updated 
constantly. and may break obviously.

@Chris: Looks like you have big plans for the port - so I won't be in your way.

If Chris wants to take the maintainership I'm fine with it.

Its not that, It's just that I have seen this port unchanged for so 
long, but sure I will take maintainership. I would rather the port be 
removed and care taken to make kvirc working. But if you don't agree I 
will take maintainership of the port.
