net-p2p/tvrss - is an app, that should grab tvlists from http://tvrss.net and looks for relevant torrent files. It builds/installs/runs fine, but teh problem is that tvrss.net is not more available, so this programm completely useless in it's current state.
according to webarchive.org , the last time when tvrss.net was up - december 2010.
as far i understand, it has something to do with http://ezrss.it/, but net-p2p/tvrss should be somehow adopted to grab feeds from this new site. It doesn't work if i just replace tvrss.net with ezrss.it.
Last release of tvrss is 2005-09-26.
Conclusion: this port is unmaintained and has no use in default installation and needs modification to make it work with ezrss.net. Mainstream development seems stalled. So i think that it's safe to deprecate it and then move from the ports tree.
