x11-wm/compiz-plugins-unsupported unfetchable. This also breaks compiz-fusion if unsupported is selected from its make config
I maintain one of the compiz plugins, myself,
and this caught my eye too. A quick check seems
to indicate that this plugin is still available
on it's designated MASTER_SITES. Why is it
marked BROKEN (unfetchable)?
Thanks for looking into this! :-)
It's not fetchable. If it does for you, then you are fetching it from the FreeBSD mirrors (which are *not* intended as primary sources) or you have cached the distribution files locally.

So this port is actually broken, and no fix is provided. Closing this as invalid.
(In reply to Rene Ladan from comment #2)
With due respect. I'm looking at the directory
index at releases.compiz.org right this very
moment. I am easily able to download the
release/version required by this port. The
check sums also line up. I have no idea why
others (including you?) are unable to fetch(1)
OTOH if it still doesn't even work. That's another
OK I did a bit more research and discovered they now
apparently live here:
I cloned the repo, and the packed-refs indicate
the entire history from 0.2.0 - 0.9.14. But
interestingly; the 0.8.x series is completely missing.
I'll try to get more info. It might be worth a
look into actually creating a 9-series port. :-)
That's it for now.
FWIW, a further developed compiz 0.8.x series is available on GitHub: https://github.com/compiz-reloaded/compiz-plugins-experimental. So are most of the other previously on http://releases.compiz.org/0.8.4/ hosted: https://github.com/compiz-reloaded/.
