Description Peter Putzer 2019-05-23 13:38:52 UTC
The upstream "portable" version of acme-client is currently unmaintained (https://github.com/kristapsdz/acme-client-portable). The port should either be retired or changed to rely on the OpenBSD base version (https://cvsweb.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/usr.sbin/acme-client/).
Comment 1 Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2019-05-26 13:39:26 UTC
Hi Peter,

You are correct. I'm currently not using acme-client a lot, any new configs I need use acme.sh.

Would you be able to provide a patch? Otherwise I'll delete the port.

In theory, yes, but I don't think I'll have the time in the near future.

I'm not going to have time to maintain a portable port either. Pitty, acme-client worked well for me!

Thanks Peter :D
Comment 5 Arnaud de Prelle 2019-05-28 15:14:47 UTC
Indeed, that's a pitty. I was also using this port since a long time w/o any trouble.

In private email I had someone that wants to try and create a FreeBSD version of the upstream release again. So hold on, it may return! Keep your cc on this thread, I hope not to forget to update here.

Thanks @Bernard for this information.
In the meantime I switched to the acme.sh port which does the job in an even simpler way.
