Diff to use 9front git snapshot for drawterm

This patch updates net/drawterm (the Plan9 remote GUI application) to use a fork maintained by the 9front project.  From the forks description:

This is a fork of Russ Cox's drawterm to incorporate features
from Plan9front (http://9front.org), most importantly DP9IK
authentication support (see authsrv(6)) and the TLS based rcpu(1)
Comment 1 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2021-09-15 21:35:49 UTC
Thanks for your patch, looking at OpenBSD it seems like there are issues pulling directly from their git server
Comment 2 pete 2021-09-16 02:46:06 UTC
Interesting.  I've tested a couple times on my system and running "make makesum" multiple times and I seem to get the same file and checksum info.  It also matches the checksum's from when I filed the PR yesterday.  I also tested on a couple difference systems and didn't run into the issue the OpenBSD maintainers ran into.

If we are worried about being bit by this before updating I'm happy to reach out to their maintainer.
Comment 3 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2021-09-16 11:40:09 UTC
Yeah, it seems to be fixed now as with their mercurial repo which offers a tar.bz2 archive that's slightly smaller.

Best regards,

I'm (now) running into the issue mentioned over at OpenBSD's repo.
We're probably going to have the same issue with their hg repo.

Patch for drawterm (WIP)

Tidy up a few things to make portlint happy
Comment 6 winston 2021-10-26 02:48:01 UTC
Hello, changes look good.  I'm interested in finding a new maintainer for this port, or orphaning it, whichever is easier.  I am unable to provide further ports maintenance at this time.

I've reached out directly to see if Pete's interested in taking over maintainership.
Comment 7 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2022-02-12 09:05:30 UTC

Thanks for follow up, I'll mark this port as deprecated and as exp date unless we hear from Pete.

Best regards,
Comment 8 pete 2022-02-14 17:52:30 UTC
Hello, I am sorry this fell of my plate.  I'm happy to take over maintainership for this port as I still hack around on 9front.  I'll start that process today.
