I'm the maintainer of audio/musepack. With the last update, it now provides
libmpdec.so. About 15 ports currently use the older shared library provided by
audio/libmpcdec (maintained by multimedia@, CCed).
For now, mutual CONFLICTS are registered.
What I'm planning to do is update all depending ports to use audio/musepack,
thus making audio/libmpcdec obsolete.
I have some questions before I'll start working on this task:
- Are there any objections to deprecating libmpcdec and replacing it by
musepack? According to the website, libmpcdec version is "Old. Refer to above
SV8 lib (compatible with SV7)".
After creating a patch for updating and testing:
- Should I ask the maintainers of the affected ports for approval?
I've tested musicpd and vlc so far and update was pretty straight-forward:
and bump the port revision.
Because both ports conflict, upgrading needs manual intervention. I guess I
should prepare an entry for UPDATING?
Anything I forgot or other thoughts?
