removal www/newsbeuter

Björn Ketelaars
newsbeuter has been abandoned almost 6 months ago. There is however an
active maintained fork available (https://newsboat.org), which is in
ports: www/newsboat.

Any objections to sending www/newsbeuter to the attic?

No objections here, please send a diff before committing though just so
we can check everything's ok.

What do you think is best for quirks? Are the two compatible enough that
it would be sane to auto update from newsbeuter to newsboat, or would
it be better to add to $obsolete_reason as "no longer maintained upstream",
maybe with an faq/current.html mention about it?

I switched to newsboat after it was imported and that was very smooth.

ok remi@ for the removal of www/newsbeuter.

I think we also want a quirks entry so that people running newsbeuter
get newsboat with the next pkg_add -u.

FWIW, I've done the same - also, without any issues.

IMVHO, good idea.

I will wait for about a week before doing anything, except collecting
feedback. I did however prepare a diff for quirks. Newsboat has
a mechanism in place that prompts you whether it should port your
newsbeuter configuration upon the first run. This should ensure a smooth
update.

The binaries however have different names. I'm not sure if this warrants
a mentioning on current.html. I do not thinks so, other opinions?

And a diff for unhooking newsbeuter from www.

Same as above...I will wait for about a week.

Don't think so either, as quirks will update to newsboat, users will
find it via news<tab> ?

Yes, it is just a fork, after newsbeuter abandoned.
FreeBSD Ports in the last year stepped this, the change from newsbeuter to newsboat was smoothly on FreeBSD.
