Description Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-05-24 11:24:00 UTC
Upstream development has ended 2 years ago and the MYSQL option is broken as 
USE_PHP=mysql is no longer supported with PHP 7.x, so there is some doubt as
to whether it even works with PHP 7 or not.

Should this port be removed?  If it stays the MYSQL should be fixed.

It seems that there is some activity here [1], so maybe it can be updated

Thank you for your notification.

As active development is over and has not been taken over by anyone for years, www/pivotx should be removed.

Rremove it, please.

Thank you,
