svn diff for net/xrdesktop

net/xrdesktop has been fairly unmaintained, as is the currently
listed WWW -- domain expired 2 weeks ago, and is now a 403 to
godaddy. As a result, a new GTK2 version has been created to
replace it: net/xrdesktop2
(https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=197157)
This version is more modern, and is actively developed, and
maintained.

As a result; This is a proposal to EOL net/xrdesktop on 2015-02-30
or before, should that seem a better choice.

Please find attached, an svn diff that accommodates this,
and provides an alternative.

Thank you for all your time, and consideration.

Please note that 2015-02-30 is an impossible date.

I'll make it 2015-02-28, the last day of the month.

Comment 3 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2015-02-01 11:12:48 UTC
Done.

I did not tough the pkg-descr file, since this isn't standard practice. The deprecated notice will be displayed to anyone trying to install the port or package anyway.

I also added conflicts with the new net/xrdesktop2 port.

Ugh, of course. Sorry.
