Hi All,

You are all maintainer of a port that depends on www/apache22. The
Apache 2.2 port has been marked EXPIRED for almost a year. I was about
to delete it but didn't want to go ahead without informing you. My
analysis of the dependent ports can be found in the FreeBSD wiki

If the port cannot be updated to work with Apache 2.4 it will be
removed together with www/apache22. Let me and apache@ know if you can
update the port to use 2.4 or if there's a different port we should be
pointing to in MOVED.

Thank you for your cooperation!

With kind regards, Bernard Spil (with hat apache@)
