Description John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-20 18:16:35 UTC
Hi Chris,
We're making a push to try to eliminate interactive ports, of which linux-steam is one.  I'll assume that the port is still useful.  Can you tell me why it's listed as interactive, and if it's technically possible to convert this into a regular port?

That would also have the benefit of being downloadable as a pkg binary package.
Comment 1 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-20 18:17:30 UTC
notify maintainer
Comment 2 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-06-27 11:05:24 UTC
Maintainer thus far is non-responsive, but email is not bouncing back.  Due to this and the previous PR timeout, I'll reset the maintainer to ports@ after 7 more days pass if nothing changes, and then I'll deprecate the port like the other unmaintained interactive ports.

Log:
  games/linux-steam: Reset maintainer and deprecate this interactive port

  The maintainer is not reachable via email although messages don't bounce.
  The current and previous PR have both timed out.  Reset the maintainer and
  set deprecation date for 20 August, the same the other unmaintained
  interactive ports.  The port is already staged, but a new maintainer
  should convert this interactive port to a regular one in order to
  undeprecate it.
