You missed the funny part: his cvs still contains what we asked to be
removed. He mixed in a confuse manner his "own" ports with ours using
a branch called "openbsd" and says that it's "basically a mirror of
openbsd ports tree".
Result: our names and email adresses are still present in his cvs
Congratulations. You have just discovered a CVS feature called "vendor
branch". Read all about it at
The OpenBSD ports tree is imported verbatim as the "openbsd" vendor
branch. Then, during the resulting merge, OpenBSD maintainer names are
removed and conflicts are resolved. Okay, we forgot to do this during
the last few imports. So I apologize for that. Could we please stop the
flamewars now and return to a normal discussion? I am on this list to
help with ports, not to flame.
Ed's relentlessness is the ultimate in existential humor. It's like
Beckett and Chaplin got together to design an editor.
