#40794 closed enhancement (fixed)

grass @6.4.3: upgrade postgresql variants

Reported by: petrrr Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: mojca (Mojca Miklavec), cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: grass

Description

This is a request to upgrade the postgresql variants a bit and provide variants +postgresql92 and (maybe) +postgresql93, the first becoming the default. This is particularly interesting because other ports now default to +postgresql92. So the current situation is a bit messy and one would and up with two postgresql versions by default. +postgresql93 might become more relevant in future. To my understanding postgresql83 is not maintained any more.

From the grass webpage I see no clear indications nor contraindications about which versions exactly are compatible.

grass @6.4.3 (gis)
Variants:             ffmpeg, mysql5, postgresql83, postgresql84, postgresql90,
                      postgresql91, sqlite3, universal, wxPython, wxwidgets

Sure, committed in r112311. However I didn't test anything as I'm not really able to make the port work reliably.

I didn't make any postgresql variant the default one though, so the port still builds without PostgreSQL bindings. Please open a new ticket for that for either egall or any other future maintainer who cares about the port if you think that the bindings should simply always be enabled.

Also, in case that you would like to volunteer for a port maintainer, we would be very happy and then you could do with the port "whatever your heart would please" ;). I already asked egall the same and I'm still waiting for him to collect the courage and to agree, but you could both be maintainers if both of you decide to work on the port.

I don't know how to use the software, so I lack the proper motivation to look deep down and to try to fix the problems.

Thanks!

Sorry, your right the port does not require any postgres variant, and it is okay like this. My confusion ;(

Well, I am starting getting involved with MP and I might step in as maintainer on some ports. However, so far I know little about grass, so for the moment avoid becoming involved here, maybe at a later stage.

I want to at least be able to get it fixed on my own computer before I agree to maintain it, and that requires fixing #40315 first.
