  what do you think about removing old ports ftp/lukemftp and ftp/lukemftpd?
lukemftp/lukemftpd have been renamed to tnftp/tnftpd in the past and the
old ports lukemftp/lukemftpd seems to be more and more obsolete, whereas
the same programs under new names tnftp/tnftpd are maintained.

- Obsolete ftp/lukemftp:
  Maintainer is jedgar at (sending Cc), version is ftp-1.5.tar.gz
  from Oct 11 2000 before renaming. Distfile is not fetchable from master

+ New ftp/tnftp:
  Maintainer is tmclaugh at, version is tnftp-20030825.tar.gz
  from Aug 25 2003, which is direct successor instead of lukemftp.
  You can see PR ports/62373 New port: ftp/tnftp NetBSD ftp
  client - obsoletes lukemftp

- Obsolete ftp/lukemftpd:
  There is no maintainer (ports at and version is
  lukemftpd-1.1.tar.gz from May 9 2001 before renaming. Distfile has been
  fixed currently.

+ New ftp/tnftpd:
  Maintained by me (cejkar at and version is
  tnftpd-20031217.tar.gz from Dec 18 2003, which is direct successor
  instead of lukemftpd.
