Description martin 2015-08-24 08:21:04 UTC
Please remove this port:

- It doesn't work (it needs to updated to the latest version for it to work)
- I don't have a FreeBSD machine available anymore, so I'm not likely to update it anytime soon.
- No one else offered a update in the months that its been broke, leading me to the conclusion that no one cares about this port.

Thanks ;-)

Our policy is not to remove broken and unmaintained ports right away, but to mark them as such and reset maintainer. This way it'll apparent for users that the port is non-functional and for potential maintainers that it needs attention and is free for adoption. If it's still not fixed after some time, the port will be eventually removed.
