I noticed not too long ago that mbone/udpcast was outdated (as in more
than 3 years old). Not knowing what or how to proceed with such an
outdated port, I decided to file a bug report. It seemed the sensible
thing to do.
As you can see below, Edwin (edwin .at. FreeBSD.org) made the change to
close the ticket without much details.

Well, I know what patches are, but I don't think patches themselves are
able to fix the outdated port.. so I'm lost. What do I do?
I thought since the port was extremely outdated, that someone with a
commit bit would have to setup the updated port in the CVS tree, I
can't commit them myself. I don't even know exactly what patches are
needed or where to submit them.
So, how do I proceed? I need some tips and a hand-in-hand tutorial on
what to update and where to send the update.
Thanks for the tips. BTW: I'm subscribed to the questions list on a
