Description Pav Lucistnik freebsd_committer 2005-11-09 21:40:18 UTC
offix is a virtual category with 6 members and no future.  The ports are
rather unknown and their development stopped years ago.

Ports listed in offix category:
 * deskutils/offix-trash: Trash from OffiX
 * editors/offix-editor: Editor from OffiX
 * print/offix-printer: OffiX printer icon with support of DND protocol
 * x11/offix-clipboard: X clipboard with support of DND protocol
 * x11/offix-execute: Files executor from OffiX
 * x11-fm/offix-files: File bar from OffiX


I propose removal of offix category, ie.:
- removing it from six affected ports' CATEGORIES line
- removing it from VALID_CATEGORIES in bsd.port.mk

for which I'd like to secure portmgr's approval.
