        If you were to read over the old archives of this list, you
        would discover that the maintainer of the opennms port has
        serious reservations about putting it into the port tree because
        as opennms is currently configured in 1.8 you can lose
        historical data when you do an upgrade.
        There is a bug filed against opennms upstream about this. This
        same issue makes getting opennms into debian problematic as
        I don't know the bug number off the top of my head.

        The issue does not seem to be an issue with the port author not
        being willing to maintain it. The problem is with a "bug" in
        is the issue that I
        can come up with off the top of my head, I think there might be
        a second issue.
        I would expect opennms 1.9 to make it into the port tree.
        Could make it into the ports tree.
