I noticed not too long ago that mbone/udpcast was outdated (as in more
than 3 years old).  Not knowing what or how to proceed with such an
outdated port, I decided to file a bug report.  It seemed the sensible
thing to do.

As you can see below, Edwin (edwin .at. FreeBSD.org) made the change to
close the ticket without much details.

Well, I know what patches are, but I don't think patches themselves are
able to fix the outdated port..  so I'm lost.  What do I do?

I thought since the port was extremely outdated, that someone with a
commit bit would have to setup the updated port in the CVS tree, I
can't commit them myself.  I don't even know exactly what patches are
needed or where to submit them.

So, how do I proceed?  I need some tips and a hand-in-hand tutorial on
what to update and where to send the update.

Thanks for the tips.  BTW: I'm subscribed to the questions list on a
digest, I ask a CC please on all the replies.
