Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2019-04-08 13:15:48 UTC
27.* branch is no longer supported upstream and lacks many many security fixes. Can you update the port?

Comment 1 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2019-04-08 13:21:59 UTC
portmgr, should the port be marked FORBIDDEN until VuXML is populated? Note, it'd prevent build on the package cluster.

Providing vulnerable packages with very large attack surface is irresponsible.

I think I will need 2 weeks to update it.  My current employer causes me to not using FreeBSD at daily basis (in contrast, contributing to another package manager called vcpkg), so I could not priorities things on FreeBSD.

Meanwhile, if someone else would like to upgrade it and/or take the maintainership, you are welcome.

  www/palemoon: Reset maintainer

  The current maintainer no longer has time to update this port.  An
  update is sorely needed though since it is now almost a year out
  of date.
