The Cybercalendar port is quite outdated and the database creation scripts doesn't work
with the new mysql versions.
This patch fix the problem adding two files to the existing port.
Who fix the 'caluser' user creation into the mysql database and grants the user permissions in the right way.
Who fix the tables creation SQL scripts using deprecated and erroneous calls
I also fix the database structure, extending the password field in the user table to
50 characters to match with the hashes returned by the mysql function password.
After that I suggest to declare Cybercallendar deprecate because most of the dates in the forms are hardcoded in
the scripts and there is no way to declare events *after* 2010 in the calendar without code changes.
DEPRECATED= Use www/webcalendar instead

You right, there is a missing file.
The attached file is the original fix;
I suppose you don't need a patch to add
the DEPRECATE flag into the Makefile.
given that Janos agreed that the port is no longer maintainable, is there
any point in updating it at all? Wouldn't it be better to just deprecate
it and schedule its removal, say, a month or two later?
I approve the removal for two reasons :
- The application is useless (the dates are harcoded)
: no event can be scheduled after december 2010.
- There is no mantainer for the code *the last
version was released in 2001*
Maintaining this application active is a good way to
confuse users about ports reliability.
