Re: c-icap-modules not available anymore on pkgin command

Hello Jonathan,

While you repaired 'c-icap' and 'c-icap-modules' following my request below (thank you for that), at this moment - and it has been so for a while now - 'squid' and 'squid-clamav' are gone from the repository. Also, 'mariadb-server' and 'mariadb-client' have vanished.

Now I'm sure there are more packages broken and apparently vanished like that, but these actually matter to me the most right now. I am not monitoring all available channels out there, but I have been monitoring the pkgsrc build reports in for a while, and it doesn't look like these packages are coming back.
2019Q3 is for now the latest branch that does provide these packages.

Could you shed some light on what's going on here? I can imagine there are not a lot of users for 'squid' and 'squid-clamav', but I would actually expect more lamentations on missing 'mariadb'. Maybe not on this channel then.

Anyways, thanks a bunch for any insights and possible repairs!

Confusing thing here is that "c-icap-modules" is indeed still listed when
browsing the list online (here:, but it
is not being reported when from the command line on my Omni-box I run "pkgin

Am I missing something or has the package actually been disabled/removed or
If the latter, could someone please re-enable it somehow?
Hi Andries, thanks for using our packages.

While we attempt to build everything in pkgsrc, often there are many
packages that do not build.  We publish bulk build reports that show
the current status, and assuming you are using our trunk package set
then for example the most recent one is here:

In that report you can see that www/c-icap-modules is currently broken
due to clamav, which itself is broken since the recent upgrade shown

As it happens I fixed the clamav issue today here:

and there is currently an updated build running that should pull in
this fix, and publish both clamav and c-icap-modules.

I will add c-icap-modules to the list of required packages, so that in
the future if that package is unavailable the publishing step will not
be executed, and so while the repository will be older than what's
available, it will at least have all the packages you need.

Please let me know if there are any other packages you require and we
can add them to the list.

Many thanks,
