Original commit files touched by this commit Revision:559792  6.1.12_1
rene search for other commits by this committer
Remove most expired ports that depend on Python 2.7:

Exceptions are:
- mail/mailman, our listservers still use it
- www/chromium, solely because of popular demand,
  upstream is (slowly) working on porting it to Python 3
- ports that have actual patches for Python 3 against
  them (Cinnamon and a few unrelated other ports)
- llvm70 and qt5-webengine because they seem to have a lot
  of dependencies which need further analysis
- sysutils/uefi-edk2-bhyve because bhyve seems to use them
- python2 and python27 themselves

I'm sure there will be complaints, but the nice thing about
a version control system is that we can revert and adjust things.

devel/electron6: copy snappy fix from chromium

electron6 comes with two copies of the chromium source code, of which
seemingly only one is fully used - at least, the embedded leveldb
fails in only one place after the update of archivers/snappy (the
system-provided headers didn't match the embedded snappy anymore).
