Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.52.1, Package name: unison-2.52.1, Maintainer: gdt

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows
two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored
on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified
separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes
in each replica to the other.


Required to run:
[lang/ocaml]

Required to build:

net/unison: Update to 2.52.1

2.52.1 is a maintenance release in the 2.52 series. All users are
strongly encouraged to migrate all systems on which they use unison to
2.52.1. Fairly soon, only reports about 2.52.1 will be allowed in the
issue tracker.

2.52.1 is expected to be the last release in the 2.52 series, absent
prompt (7 days) discovery and reporting of a serious problem.

After a 7-day hold, work towards 2.53 may be merged. In particular
this will include changing the minimum ocaml version to 4.08. Once
this happens, there will not be any more 2.52.x releases, as no one
contributing to unison maintenance is interested in supporting old
versions. Of course, the license gives anyone the ability to create or
cherry-pick fixes and to use the fixed versions.

Changes in 2.52.1

Released 2022-05-08

- Deprecate ocaml < 4.08: 2.53.0 will require 4.08 or higher
- Add man page
- Remove rsh:// URI scheme (ssh:// of course remains).
- Significant bugfixes and minor improvements
- Deprecate "backups" preference (see manual for alternatives)
- Deprecate "stream" and "halfduplex" preferences

net/unison: Rewrite patch comment

Probably the patch should just be deleted as we don't use the install
method.  Upstream already has a makefile cleanup issue:

Log message:
net/unison*: Rename unison2.51 to unison

During the 2.51 branch, upstream decided that unison will have
backwards compatibility, so that there is no longer any reason to run
old versions.  With 2.52, not only can it interop with 2.51 (and
2.48!), but it does not need to have matching ocaml version when
interoperating with other 2.52.x or newer.  Thus, unison will now have
a single version in pkgsrc, and this is expected to continue.
