constitute "awol" in my book.
As I wrote to you, I was perfectly happy to update the port to the new
version, and add any warnings about the (non-default, not packaged) patch.
Someone removed the port before I could commit the patch to update it though.
I'm not going to start a long flamewar to recover the port, but unless portmgr
objects, I would like to get it back.
It is not particularly difficult to comply with the licence. It just takes a
bit of time (which I'm happy to spend) to keep up with new releases. Of
course, sometimes new releases will coincide with ports freezes. I'm happy to

back and continue to maintain it, if "nay", so be it.
