Patch for pidentd

Abandoned by upstream, hasn't compiled for a very long time.

Comment 1 Chris Hutchinson 2021-04-06 18:30:17 UTC
Would you mind holding off on this?
I wasn't aware of this port, and have a use for it.
So I'd like to fix and adopt this pots within the
week if you don't mind.


Comment 2 daniel.engberg.lists 2021-04-06 19:02:46 UTC
Hi Chris,

We have several alternatives in ports such as oidentd, fakeident etc that are still maintained, instead of keeping abandonware can you please consider moving on?
Comment 3 Chris Hutchinson 2021-04-07 21:19:43 UTC
(In reply to daniel.engberg.lists from comment #2)
Sure. While I haven't investigated the alternatives.
That seems reasonable. If I discover the others aren't quite what I
require. I suppose I could always reintroduce this one. ;-)

Feel free to continue removing this.

Thanks! :-)
