Description John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-20 17:36:16 UTC
Hi Charlie,
I see from the log that your port was converted to an interactive port 3 years ago.  We're making a push to eliminate interactive ports.  Can you explain why it's technically required to be interactive?  And if it's technically possible to convert it back to a regular-style port?

Comment 1 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-20 17:36:37 UTC
Notify maintainer
Comment 2 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-27 11:01:15 UTC
Hi Charlie, since ourman will be deprecated soon due to lack of stage support anyway, should we just deprecate it now?  I checked the bug tracker, there are no PRs pending so maybe you aren't interested in this port anymore?

  net-mgmt/ourmon: Reset maintainer and deprecate interactive port

  This port was going to be reset in a couple of days anyway due to lack
  of maintainer response, but I moved the timeline up since unstaged ports
  started being reset today.  Now that it's unmaintained and interactive,
  the same expiration date of the other unmaintained interactive port has
  been applied.

Deprecated and due to be removed on 20 August with other unmaintained interactive ports.
