"can used to" != "promotes" && "recursive logic" != "logic.  Surely
there are better arguments against deprecating jive.

If PyCon can implement a Code of Conduct without substantive
disagreement why shouldn't FreeBSD do the same for ports?  It would not
have to be universally agreed to but should be acceptable to a
substantial majority.

Note that this has nothing to do with any particular port.  Most of us
still have no idea what made jive unacceptable other than the fact that
it was unmaintained and had no repository.
