NetBSD dstar 7.1.2_PATCH NetBSD 7.1.2_PATCH (GENERIC) #0: Fri May 4 15:44:38 PDT 2018 scole@dstar:/home/scole/nbsd/cvs/7_0/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
chat/line-purple should be disabled or deleted in current and stable pkgsrc.
Apparently, LINE started banning the accounts of people who use 3rd party applications, (see http://altrepo.eu/git/purple-line), which this package is. This can result in the loss of all your contacts and account information.
The original developer of this software broke his build on purpose:
I'm not sure of the preferred pkgsrc way to handle these kind of cases.
Is it just to add
to the pkgsrc Makefile and increment the version?
I don't really have a preference to disable or delete, just wanted to know the "correct" pkgsrc way to handle.
I can do the work in a week or two, or if someone else wants to handle this feel free.
