Description Fabian Keil 2013-03-10 16:20:00 UTC
www/privoxy+ipv6 is obsolete as the "official" www/privoxy supports IPv6 since several years now.

According to the distfile, www/privoxy+ipv6 is based on a patched Privoxy CVS checkout from 2003. AFAIK none of the bug fixes have been back ported and using www/privoxy+ipv6 instead of the vanilla version has no advantage.

It is also not longer recommended at:


Deprecate www/privoxy+ipv6 or remove it right away.
