Description Steve Wills freebsd_committer 2020-09-24 16:26:20 UTC
This port will be removed on 2020-12-31 if not fixed
Comment 1 Li-Wen Hsu freebsd_committer 2020-09-28 15:55:28 UTC
This is used by https://svnweb.freebsd.org/
Comment 2 Olli Hauer freebsd_committer 2020-10-05 11:50:27 UTC
There is some work upstream on https://github.com/viewvc/viewvc
However, until now there is no new release supporting python3.
I can only suggest to look into a different solution like websvn-php or usvn since I do not belive there will be a release before python2 is removed from ports
Comment 3 Dan Langille freebsd_committer 2020-11-30 14:40:29 UTC
I contacted upstream regarding a Python 3 release of their code:


In short, they said use what's on master.

From that, devel/viewvc-devel was created using Python 3 - I'm running that at home.

The work was based on:

Comment 4 Rene Ladan freebsd_committer 2020-12-31 17:51:14 UTC
Expired port removed, use devel/viewvc-devel instead.
