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..

Awaiting maintainers feedback (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)
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?
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.
Patch to request Maintainership
I'll take it.
