#42915 closed enhancement (fixed)

[Port Abandoned] swig*

Reported by: michaelld (Michael Dickens) Owned by: kevin@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: swig swig-*


Person email to "kevin@…" dated 2014-02-10 to update SWIG to 2.0.12. This email was never acknowledged, nor was SWIG updated.

Ticket #42911, to update SWIG to 3.0.0, filed Tuesday, 2014-03-18.

Quick search for "kevin@…" turns up no emails to MacPorts lists, nor replies to tickets, going back at least 3 years if not longer. I can find a commit by "kevin" to SWIG about 9 years ago; all more recent commits are not by kevin.

"port list maintainers:kevin" shows ownership of just the SWIG* ports (single Portfile with multiple subports), which I will take over if no reply by 2014-03-21 @ Noon US/ET.

Port: swig, swig-*swig swig-*
Type: requestenhancement
Version: 2.2.1

Note that a "request" ticket type is for requesting new ports only.

Haha! I didn't think an "abandonment" was an enhancement type ... it's more of a request ... but, that's reserved for new ports then I guess this works. Thanks!

Maintainer timeout. I'm taking over this port. Done in r118180.

Now that you are the maintainer for swig, you should make sure to add yourself on CC for all of the tickets that are currently open against swig and its sub-ports:

Enable cffi support in swig?
swig: subports do not respect build_arch
swig-octave: mkoctfile... configure: error: mkoctfile is not installed
swig 3.0.2 port lacks necessary JavaScript files
cmake-based ports: Switch to cmake 1.1 portgroup
Please update swig-ruby to work with ruby-2.4
swig-ruby: Add support for ruby25
nds2-client-octave: Error: Syntax error - possibly a missing semicolon.
swig: remove dependency on swig3, swig3-${lang}
