FreeBSD unmaintained ports which are currently scheduled for deletion

As part of an ongoing effort to reduce the number of problems in
the FreeBSD ports system, we periodically schedule removal of ports
that have been judged to have outlived their usefulness.  Often,
this is due to a better alternative having become available and/or
the cessation of development on the existing port.  In some cases,
ports are marked for removal because they fail to build and install
correctly from their sources, or otherwise fail in operation.

The ports, and the reason and date that they have been scheduled
for removal, are listed below.  If no one has stepped forward before
that time to propose a way to fix the problems (such as via a PR),
the ports will be deleted.

portname:           chinese/joe
description:        Joe's Own Editor
maintainer:         ports at
deprecated because: The difference with editors/joe is too trivial to
                    warrant a separate port
expiration date:    2015-09-27
build errors:       none.

portname:           games/wmfortune
description:        Dockapp that outputs fortune messages
maintainer:         ports at
status:             BROKEN
deprecated because: Broken for more than 6 months
expiration date:    2015-04-30
build errors:       none.
