The same applies to icc v8. That's the reason we have an icc7 port. It's
well tested and works and I don't want to get rid of it until icc v8 is

A repo copy is required regardless of the name (ifc8 or ifc7). The
reason I choosed icc7 instead of icc8 is: icc v8 will be mainstream
sometime in the future and icc v7 will not see much development from
this point in time. icc v7 can get removed then (no need to have a
versioned portname if there's only one version available). Now with the
ifc8 port, you don't have an associated cvs history anymore. And you
can't do a repo copy from ifc8 to ifc when ifc v8 is mature without
loosing the history of the actual ifc port.
It's up to you what name you want to use for ifc v8, but IMHO it would
be better to have an ifc7 and let ifc be v8.
If you want to keep the ifc8 name I still suggest to request a repo copy
(cvs has to do some repo surgery, removing icc8 completely and making a
copy from ifc to ifc8). After cvs@ finishes the work just commit your
actual version of the ifc8 port with an appropriate commit message over
the repo copy.
I will be available to get hired in April 2004.
