Hi, I’m using MacPorts for many years, but I’m new on this list.
A few days ago I was building SCM Workbench on MacPorts Python 3.7 (because the binary package was expecting python.org Frameworks to be installed). The project uses dmgbuild, and there were ports for all(?) versions of Python.
py37-dmgbuild didn’t work, because the port used an old state of dmgbuild that was Py2 only, but py27-dmgbuild did the job.
Today I wanted to document the process – and the ports were gone!
I looked for "dmgbuild" in all mailing list, tracker and github commit messages and found only:
* https://trac.macports.org/attachment/ticket/56662/main.log (dmgbuild used as an external tool)
* https://trac.macports.org/attachment/ticket/59137/vlc_build_log_clang8.log (dmgbuild not found)
(I used Google with "site:" as well as site searches.)
Does anyone know why these ports were removed (instead of updated maybe) or how I could find out more?
Best regards, Hraban
