Description landsidel.allen 2011-09-08 21:00:21 UTC
Port x11-toolkits/swt is incorrectly marked broken "does not fetch."  It does fetch, it just takes a while, as the first working server is well down the list of those tried.


Remove or fix broken package source URLs.  Some have gone away entirely, others have been changed to archive ftp/http directories as the version in the port is rather old.
Comment 1 Chris Rees 2011-09-08 21:09:38 UTC
If you have the time, it would be a real help if you identify the failing

The list of sites tried is in the Makefile, under MASTER_SITES.

Comment 2 landsidel.allen 2011-09-08 23:47:11 UTC
Sure.  Will be back in a bit with a diff.
Comment 3 landsidel.allen 2011-09-09 00:11:18 UTC
Due to the age, it seems best to not mess around with 
MASTER_SITE_ECLIPSE just now.  In the Mk/bsd.sites.mk I added a new 
section after MASTER_SITE_ECLIPSE.  The master sites look like they are 
mostly still correct for newer versions of swt.


And changed the Makefile for x11-toolkits/swt to use 

Make fetch works as expected.

Not sure if this is the correct way to name an old/archival master site 
or not.

  Use Eclipse archive site instead-- this port could really do with an update.

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

Committed the archive site just to swt-- it's not something we should 
put in bsd.sites.mk because it's a temporary solution. If you feel like 
working on it, it would be great if you would like to become maintainer 
of swt and update it to a later version... Thanks for the MASTER_SITES
