The intention of this renaming is to use the port name "ardour" for the latest Ardour version. The latest version is currently available as port "ardour5".
However the major version number of Ardour will rather soon increase to v6.
The version the port "ardour" currently reflects is Version 2.8.x of upstream Ardour which is not maintained upstream for several years.
Furthermore the current "ardour" port doesn't build.
My plan is to rename ardour5 to ardour as soon as new release is available.

Let me know if the attached patch files are OK for this purpose!

The port should be unbroken as of ports r461552.  As for the renaming, yeah, I guess it makes sense.  However, it also makes sense to keep v2 around for a while: Ardour v2 sessions are forward-compatible, but once you save in later versions you can't go back.  So upgrading will be tricky for people that still have their works developed on v2.  (For this reason some GNU/Linux distros package both Ardour v2 and whatever is most recent version.)

Once I'm confident that Ardour2 (current port) builds and packages fine everywhere, I'll probably start replacing ardour > ardour2; ardour5 -> ardour.

Yes, makes sense. Fine with me.

Expired port removed.
