FreeBSD ports that you maintain which are currently scheduled for deletion

Dear FreeBSD port maintainer:

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.

overview:           http://portsmon.FreeBSD.org/portoverview.py?category=x11-toolkits&portname=ruby-panelapplet


If this problem is one that you are already aware of, please accept
our apologies and ignore this message.  On the other hand, if you no
longer wish to maintain this port (or ports), please reply with a
message stating that, and accept our thanks for your efforts in the
past.

Thanks for your efforts to help improve FreeBSD.
