Please close ports/96379.

I am not accepting patches to update the FreeBSD/DragonflyBSD port
security/openvpn to 2.0.7.

The only OpenVPN 2.0.7 change affects Windows which doesn't understand
%llu placeholders in *printf, as the ChangeLog very clearly states:

  "2006.04.12 -- Version 2.0.7

  * Code added in 2.0.6-rc1 to extend byte counters
    to 64 bits caused a bug in the Windows version which has now
    been fixed.  The bug could cause intermittent crashes."

I ask that all PRs asking or patching the OpenVPN port
to version 2.0.7 be closed without further questions asked.

Please stop wasting everybody's time with bogus requests!

Thank you.

The patch is bogus.

1. USE_RC_SUBR-installed files do not belong into pkg-plist.

2. %%PORTDOCS%% belongs into pkg-plist, the sample scripts
   and documentation files aren't crucial for operation for OpenVPN.
   I'm not accepting patches to remove these %%PORTDOCS%% tags.

3. OpenVPN 2.0.7 does not contain changes relevant for FreeBSD. I'm not
   updating the port if no code, script or documentation changes. See
