Description ml 2018-09-07 12:49:18 UTC
This software uses function split() which was deprecated already in PHP 5.6 and removed in 7.0.

While a newer version of FlySpray (1.0) is in beta, the one we have in ports ( needs something like PHP_VER=56 in the Makefile to run.

That's however not enough, since devel/flyspray requires databases/adodb, which needs the same treat (unless it becomes flavorized one day).

According to FreshPorts, devel/flyspray is the only consumer of databases/adodb.

Use databases/adodb5 instead of databases/adodb

Upon further investigation, FlySpray itself can work with PHP 7.2 (albeit with some warnings).
The real problem is its dependency databases/adodb, which is stuck at PHP 5.

However FlySpray works fine with (the newer) databases/adodb5.
