 Sorry for not responding in time, and posting to a closed ticket, but I'm
 not sure defining the version is working as expected, consider:
 $ port livecheck git-flow-devel
 git-flow-devel seems to have been updated (port version:
 new version: 1ffb6b1091f05466d3cd27f2da9c532a38586ed5)
 * `15aab26 - 2012/09/25 (develop)`
 * `1ffb6b1 - 2011/02/14 (master)`

 On a different note, I've been considering removing the `nvie`-based
 `gitflow` ports, precisely because people seem neither to realize it is
 effectively abandoned, see https://github.com/nvie/gitflow, nor recognize
 that the actively developed AVH Edition
 (https://github.com/petervanderdoes/gitflow) exists.

 In the case of the ''hash'' driven `git-flow-devel`, while it may be
 preferred to set `version` in the `Portfile`, if kept, as in `ffmpeg-
 devel`, it's probably best to simply set `livecheck.type none`

 My preference is to remove the `nvie` ports, and make the AVH Edition the
