I have not updated dovecot to 1.2.10 yet.

I haven't even begun to look at your dovecot-sieve portfile yet; I was just interested in getting dovecot updated to 1.2.10. I was referring to irrelevancies in the patch that was supplied in this ticket to perform that update:


For example, it changes the Id line, it changes the branch variable name to major_version, it introduces a typo in the long_description, it adds an unnecessary distname directive, it changes pkgconfig from a build to a library dependency, it adds Darwin 7 blocks when MacPorts now requires Darwin 8 or newer, it changes the formatting of the rawlog and ldap variants.... Why were all these changes made and what do they have with updating the port to 1.2.10?
