Description Remko Lodder freebsd_committer 2016-06-24 05:42:40 UTC
Hi there,

You have recently updated the letsencrypt software to use a new name.

It was called letsencrypt, like the command itself was named like that as well. It had been renamed to certbot, but the examples still use 'letsencrypt' (like pkg-message).

In addition, if you use the 'certbot' command standalone, you will get a help message that states;

$ certbot
No installers are available on your OS yet; try running "letsencrypt-auto certonly" to get a cert you can install manually

which also still mentions letsencrypt-auto in this case. Is this something we can change or ask upstream to clarify?

Would it be wise to have an entry in UPDATING so that people know that the commands change, and perhaps instruct on how to have a clean upgrade?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for your work! It is appreciated :)

(In reply to Kubilay Kocak from comment #1)

I'll leave that at the discretion of the committer. I do not have the time nor wish to generate patches. I do think that an UPDATING entry should have been placed with this rename.

Something in the lines of:

Rename py-letsencrypt to py-certbot to follow the official name change. To upgrade your software use ``pkg set -o security/py-letsencrypt:security/py-certbot py27-letsencrypt´'.

Please update all your scripts, applications, cronjobs and such to use the 'certbot' application.

... or something similiar.

Comment 5 Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2016-06-24 21:22:46 UTC
The review I had created contained an UPDATING entry. Feedback from portmgr was that `pkg` takes care of this and renames don't require an UPDATING entry.
