Description Shaun Amott 2006-04-24 23:20:16 UTC
Take responsibility for a few orphaned ports:

www/p5-libwww [1]
news/newsgrab [2]
sysutils/cronolog [3]

[1] This port is still assigned to petef@, but the rest of his ports
    were reset. Was this one overlooked? In any case, the port needs an
    active maintainer, since people want it kept up-to-date.

[2] Patch to tidy up port a bit below.

[3] I submitted a patch for this almost three months ago - is this
    maintainer considered AWOL yet? :-) At the least, could someone
    apply my patch (PR ports/92830)?

    I have also now cut down pkg-descr to keep portlint happy (patch

All ports tested and portlint(1)'ed.

Comment 1 Mark Linimon 2006-04-29 08:23:23 UTC
Indeed I should have reset www/p5-libwww with the others.  I have now done
this.  I will also send mail to the maintainer of sysutils/cronolog asking
if they want to keep the port.

Sure assign it to the committer, although his patches are indeed patches
against the original source and not the actual canonical source. I.e.
the original source hasn't been updated for some time. However, the patches
are a good idea, I'd just rather see them go in through the software author
than through the ports system.

In any case, I'm quite busy these days, so please reassign.

Comment 3 Vasil Dimov freebsd_committer 2006-05-04 15:57:54 UTC
Note to the futher committer: I just committed the sysutils/cronolog
patch included in this PR.

Shaun, please submit different PRs next time when the diffs you want
committed do not depend on each other, thanks for your patches!

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.

To clarify: I'm offering to maintain these ports. Please assign them to
shaun@inerd.com; I submitted a single PR because I thought it would be
easier, for such a simple change. Looks like it had the opposite effect
-- sorry.
