Description Brad Huntting 2005-09-07 01:10:11 UTC
	      The fcron port has been broken for many months.  The
	      port tries to use a development release of fcron which
	      is several years old (2.1.0) and no longer available.
	      (The current developement release is 2.9.7 and changes

	      I have created a new port of the 'stable release'
	      (which, fixes a recent security hole).  A tar file
	      of the new port can be found at


	      If there are no objections, please put me down as the
	      port maintainer for sysutils/fcron.

Fix: The new port can be found at http://www.glarp.com/hidden/fcron/fcron-port.tar

How-To-Repeat: 	cd /usr/ports/sysutils/fcron; make

The patch does not apply cleanly. Could you please submit a new patch?

Ok.  It looks like a new stable release has come out since I sent
in the original patch.  Here's diffs for the new 3.0.0 branch.  I
tested this with:

	cd /usr/ports/sysutils/fcron
	patch -E <fcron-3.0.0-patch
