Created attachment 216329 [details]

A significant version bump since the maintainer did not update the port in months.
Comment 1 Daniel Shafer 2020-07-09 06:08:49 UTC
I'm currently busy but was already planned on updating the port this weekend.

I also would like if the FreeBSD admins give me more than just 1 day to respond to these requests.   Thank you!

(responding with bugmeister@ hat) hmm.  Well, this PR was initially submitted by a user, not the admins.  The auto-assigner generated the first piece of email, as we expect it to do (e.g. via setting the "maintainer-feedback?" field).  fernape@ then quickly indicated that he would claim the PR to handle it once it was approved.

So ... the intention wasn't to irritate you, it's simply our workflow "working as designed".

I'm sorry if it did not come off that way.

No problem.   I've had ports hijacked before so just wanted to make sure.  I work directly with the developer at times and have a certain way I handle updating my ports but due to covid19 I've had more pressing issues.   I'll get it updated this weekend

Sure thing Daniel. I'm taking some days off starting tomorrow, so there is no rush :). Of course, if you feel like this should be committed while I'm AFK, just send an email to freebsd-ports@ and some other committer will pick this up.
Comment 5 Marcel Bischoff 2020-07-09 08:50:10 UTC
Daniel, I submitted the patch. To get this right out of the way: in my view, pressing concerns are a valid reason for delays when working on a volunteer basis.

However, the time difference between the most recent version (https://github.com/theotherp/nzbhydra2/releases/tag/v2.25.0) and the last version bump of this port (https://github.com/theotherp/nzbhydra2/releases/tag/v2.7.2) is about 9 months. In the time between there have been 100+ releases.

It's a niche port, granted. Still, it would be great to have more frequent updates than once every couple of months. If for whatever reason you don't want to maintain this port any longer, I raise my hand.
Comment 6 Daniel Shafer 2020-07-09 13:22:25 UTC
I never said I didn't want to maintain the port.   The developer releases updates at a very fast rate which can make it tedious to update every single release.   Showing this kind of attitude isn't very appropriate either.
Comment 7 Daniel Shafer 2020-07-15 00:29:15 UTC
Thanks for your diff, I hadn't had a chance to look at it and started a new job this week so got busy, it appears our thought process on the update was similar.

I updated the port and submitted a review request which can be viewed here:

I will work on keeping the port updated more frequently, however, as I mentioned the developer tends to release new versions very frequently.  I've seen him release multiple ones in one day.

I apologize for the delay and again apologize for taking so long to update the port.

After careful consideration.  I will be focusing on updating the port twice a month, except in situations where the update as been deemed broken by the developer, or if there is a pressing update that fixes a broken release already released.
