No Homepage

Information for users

Some ports link to this page because their upstream homepage has been removed or never existed.

Sometimes you can find the original upstream URL commented out in the Portfile.

MacPorts team members usually try to figure out whether upstream really vanished or the homepage just got moved. But they can miss some things too, servers can get online again, etc. If you happen to know where upstream went or if the original homepage is online again, please file a ticket and tell the port maintainer about it!

Missing upstream does not automatically lead to the removal of a package. But if bugs are piling up for a package where upstream is missing the MacPorts maintainer may decide to remove the port rather than fixing bugs.

The following resources might be helpful in finding a new or replacement homepage:

Information for MacPorts maintainers

If the homepage of a package you maintain is unavailable and no new location can be found, please update the homepage variable in Portfile:
