Summary0001631: Install Problem with MacPorts

When trying to install graphviz from macports:
[[email protected]]$ sudo /opt/local/bin/port install graphviz-devel
---> Fetching graphviz-devel
---> Attempting to fetch graphviz-2.21.20081012.0445.tar.gz from [^]
Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: fetch failed
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

It looks like the 2.21 version of the file is no longer in that directory. I view this more as a problem with MacPorts but I figured I would open a bug here in case you guys can commit a workaround.


P.S. - I think you guys are doing a great job, but moving this project to more modern tools (GitHub?) would make life alot easier for end users in terms of searching bugs, etc...

Additional Information

[ryan] You can close [^] and advise the reporter to write to macports-users. The user evidently hasn't updated his ports tree since October 2008 and is thus using port definitions that are vastly outdated. I update the graphviz-devel port in MacPorts approximately weekly. The user is also evidently using MacPorts 1.6 or older; MacPorts 1.7 would have fetched the file from our mirror server.

Thanks for the bug report but your intuition that this is more a concern of Macports is correct. You should contact
the macports-users mailing list. Apparently, your MacPorts is out-of-date.

Thanks also for the kind words. We have considered moving the software to a more modern base, but the churn would
be significant, and we don't have the manpower to do the port along while working on Graphviz and keeping our
day jobs.
