Description Trevor Johnson freebsd_committer 2004-12-22 15:40:31 UTC
The DEPRECATED line I added causes the port to fail.

Since it contains a security bug, I would mark it FORBIDDEN,
DEPRECATED=${FORBIDDEN} and also EXPIRATION_DATE.

I considered marking it FORBIDDEN but decided not to because the security
bug is minor.  I also wanted to tell users that this port is outdated, to
encourage them to try something newer if they can.

There is a bash RPM available which fixes the bug, but the port would need
to be refactored to use the new RPM.  I would set it up with
MASTER_SITES:n like I did with some of its sister ports, but I feel like
doing other things first.

Your suggestion would be okay by me, but it would also be okay to just fix
the DEPRECATED line.
