I've noted my objection to the removal of this port.  If you use
gnats4 but want to mirror the repository, you have to do some
conversion work (the format of the internal index file is different

Well, I'm neutral on this.  IIRC the previous maintainer suggested
a 4-month timeout.  Should we simply remove the date and leave it
as merely DEPRECATED?
