Path of the port


I suggest new port version of Fidogate. The patch is attached.
Based on repository:

Comment 1 Dirk Meyer freebsd_committer 2020-01-31 20:48:31 UTC
until now, no other distro has picked up this fork


I will look into this.

The patch does not apply.

Please submit your port as a shar archive.

I think this Fidogate:


is more like to old FreeBSD port news/fidogate-ds.
A long time ago, Andrey Slusar made from from  news/fidogate and it called


Nobody don't know exact reasons of fork by Andrey Slusar.
However, nor news/fidogate nor /news/fidogate-ds don't supported long time ago by developers.

Github version:


has active support by Yauheni Kaliuta. 

Of course we can make new port like news/fidogate-ds or news/fidogate5
but I think it doesn't have a matter, because only github version has active support.

suugested port

The port did not build.
It seems it was created for an older version of FreeBSD ports

- some install lines did not use STAGEDIR

- WITHOUT_* and WITH_* is obsolete
  now OPTIONS framwork is used

- some dirs are created twice
  mkdir reduced in Makefile

- sorted plist by path instead by macro

- fixed missing files and directories

The port now passed the checks:

====> Running Q/A tests (stage-qa)
/!\ To run stage-qa automatically add DEVELOPER=yes to your environment /!\
====> Checking for pkg-plist issues (check-plist)
===> Parsing plist
===> Checking for items in STAGEDIR missing from pkg-plist
===> Checking for items in pkg-plist which are not in STAGEDIR
===> No pkg-plist issues found (check-plist)

Please test if this uis still functional in your setup.

Thank you for the feedback.
My system is:

FreeBSD 12.0-STABLE r344923 SERVER  1200503

root@server:/usr/ports/news/fidogate# portlint -A
WARN: Makefile: possible use of absolute pathname "/var/spool/fido/gate".

0 fatal errors and 5 warnings found.

root@server:/usr/ports/news/fidogate# make stage-qa

Is it really that 12.0 is already too much deprecated?

I will test and send you the report. I'm a Fidogate admin, so no problems with testing.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks, all looks good. Tested
Comment 8 Dirk Meyer freebsd_committer 2020-02-03 15:42:06 UTC
The original port had stuff that worked only on older version of the ports 

Sadly fidogate 5.x missing some programs used here.

I will repo copy fidogate to fidofgate4.
Then update fidogate to 5.x
