#36839 closed defect (invalid)

mutt-devel @1.5.21 cannot be fetched, files missing on mirrors

Reported by: kchr@… Owned by: mnick@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.2
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Port: mutt-devel


It seems that one of the major upstream patches that we use for mutt-devel has disappeared from the distfile mirrors, but is still referenced in the Portfile as a critical one.

The Portfile has not been updated for almost a year (2012-01-05), but somehow the mutt-devel file area do not serve this patch anymore, and it looks the same on about every mirror I've checked so far.

Either we re-add this patch so that we can build the mutt-devel port we have in the tree (1.5.21-2), or just bump it up to latest upstream (1.5.21-6.1) which has been out since June this year. I vote for the latter, seeing as this is the bleeding edge port.

Again, I voulenteer if needed.

I've attached the missing patch, a quick solution could be to just commit it back into the mutt-devel distfiles.

For the record this patch was introduced for ticket #28269, upstream ticket here:

The patch does exist in our repository, in this port's files directory. Therefore the file is not expected to be on the distfiles mirrors.

Are you actually experiencing a problem related to this patchfile? If so please show us the error messages you get.

Sir, you seem to be absolutely correct. I was under the impression that the "files"-repository was just a local cache of distfiles and related patches, to be fetched from upstream. Sorry for causing any trouble...
