py26-repoze.* ports: broken since removal of py26-zopeinterface

Reported by: petrrr Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.4
Keywords: Cc: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Port: py-repoze.what py-repoze.what-pylons py-repoze.what-quickstart py-repoze.what.plugins.sql py-repoze.who py-repoze.who-friendlyform py-repoze.who-testutil


These ports are now broken for some time. They are un-maintained and nobody really cares. Probably they are really not needed / used any more.

So should we care of fixing them, moving them to python27, updating, etc. Or should we just retire them?

unmaintained ports:

  • py26-repoze.what
  • py26-repoze.what-pylons
  • py26-repoze.what-quickstart
  • py26-repoze.what.plugins.sql
  • py26-repoze.who
  • py26-repoze.who-friendlyform
  • py26-repoze.who-testutil

There seems to be no further interest in this ports, can we remove them?

Last update on PyPI for any of these packages seems to be about 7 years ago... Since you opened this ticket two years ago there has been no comment to this ticket, so probably nobody is interested in maintaining it or at least making sure it will work on Python 2.7 or Python 3. I don't see the point of leaving this obsolete ports in the tree so am in favor of retiring them - please do!

Agreed, let's remove them. According to the homepage, the last update was Apr 6, 2010. So they have not been tested with modern python versions.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In ee1cb4b9a14d85b87ad40f12357cd366fbc678ee/macports-ports (master):

py-repoze.[what/who]-*: remove ports

  • py26-only ports have been broken for a while, with no interest in

fixing the issue

  • there are no dependents
  • last updates by upstream seem ~7 years ago so development has stopped

and newer Python versions are presumably not supported

See: #39707
See: #56853
Closes: #51194
