Description eb4096 2021-04-08 17:34:39 UTC
Created attachment 223929 [details]
changed maintainer

I'm a user of cwm in FreeBSD 13.0 RC5, when i installed cwm i received the message there is no maintainer for this package. however, in the mirror the MAINTAINER is me@emilengler.com? The port is not up to date and the last update was May 2020.

So I'm not sure if the port needs a new maintainer or if the maintainer is still active, if it is needed then i volunteer to maintain this port.

I too have emailed the maintainer, but no response.
Comment 3 Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2021-04-09 06:46:40 UTC
The maintainer was only changed 2 weeks ago after somebody volunteered
to maintain it. What is the point of changing the maintainer again so soon?

I am not sure what you mean with the port is not up to date?
We use [0] and 6.7 is the last release there. According to Repology this
is also the last release everywhere [1] and OpenBSD has not made any
changes to it since April 2020 either [2].

If you want to update the port you can submit a patch for maintainer
review and approval.

Yes I apologize, I had an outdated version of the ports tree on my system.
Comment 5 Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2021-04-10 06:16:03 UTC
Ok, no need to apologize then. I'm going to close this for the reasons given
in bug #254868 and in my previous comment.
