Hello,

Is is possible to show the expiration date of deprecated ports?

Ronald.

What date would you consider the deprecation date to be?

Pick a port, and we'll start talking about it.

grep gives me this:

./games/battleball/Makefile:EXPIRATION_DATE=2005-07-31

and some more of these. I don't know if it is 'official' or just a reminder of the maintainer.

It is official. Nice catch. Thanks. I'll look at adding that to the website.


$ grep EXPIRATION_DATE /usr/ports/Mk/*
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk:# EXPIRATION_DATE
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk:.if defined(EXPIRATION_DATE)
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk: @${ECHO_MSG} "It is scheduled to be removed on or after ${EXPIRATION_DATE}."
$

Hello,

Thanks for adding this. I saw the clock icons in the FAQ, but don't see them in the commits list.
See linux_mesa3 update from yesterday for example.

Ronald.

I agree, http://www.freshports.org/graphics/linux_mesa3/ should be showing the Set To Expire icon. I don't know why it isn't. I'll look into it. Thanks.

I found the bug, and fixed it in beta. The script to update all ports is running now.
