Description

GeoIP/GeoLite are discontinued upstream in favor of GeoIP2/GeoLite2. Some ports still depend on libgeoip (either directly or indirectly via an API wrapper):

  • cherokee
  • ettercap
  • GeoLiteCity
  • nginx
  • ntop
  • p5-geo-ip
    • p5-mail-spamassassin
  • php-geoip
  • py-geoip
    • py-sisynala
  • snoopy
  • webalizer
  • wireshark2/wireshark22/wireshark3/wireshark30 (+geoip variant)
  • xqf
  • zeek

Some of these ports may no longer be useful or maintained upstream and can possibly be removed from MacPorts, while ports to be kept should migrate to libmaxminddb, and then libgeoip and API wrapper ports are eventually removed.

py-sisynala: delete deprecated port

Last upstream release was 0.9.19 (published 2005),
which this port was never updated to.
Other package managers do not offer this module.
Indirectly depends on libgeoip, which was discontinued.
See #64305
No dependents.
