Dear maintainer,

The irc/inspircd12 port has a few problems.

- package name conflict with irc/inspircd port
- upstream unmaintained for 3 years
- two known security issues which I confirmed with an inspircd developer on IRC
today, linked below


Upstream has zero interest in ever backporting bugfixes or security
fixes again. Will you be maintaining this software or can we remove it from the ports tree?
