Description O. Hartmann 2010-02-22 10:00:11 UTC
When using network cleints connecting to a refdb-server, like refdbib, hitting Ctrl-D while asking for password ends up in an indefinitely loop printing endless 'Please enter your passowrd' on terminal and slowing down the box.

How-To-Repeat: Try connecting to a refdb server via refdbib or any network-capable cleint. When being asked for entering the password, hit Ctrl-D and watch.

Comment 4 Carlo Strub freebsd_committer 2014-08-31 20:18:51 UTC
Port has expired.
Comment 5 O. Hartmann 2014-09-01 10:08:35 UTC
Please postpone the deletion! An update of the port is underway. The developer is creating by the end of the week a new tarball of version 1.0.3 or higher with the patches for essentiell fixes for current FreeBSD versions and fixes of broken bib2ris data transformation, which now works!

I will send a DIFF for the port (also including the required stagin via ${STAGEDIR}) as soon as the developer has approved patches and created a news tarball on sourceforge. As far as it is in my power, I'd take the maintenance then. But I#d request the port to stay alive until then, please.

Comment 6 Carlo Strub freebsd_committer 2014-09-01 19:12:25 UTC
You are the new maintainer. Please hurry with the patch. As long as the port is not staged, it is marked for removal.
Comment 7 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-09-06 18:17:43 UTC
Where is the update?  I found this PR in the process of removing refdb.
Comment 8 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-09-09 06:35:29 UTC
FYI, I'm removing this port tonight.   We've waited long enough.
