Description Daniel M. Weeks 2019-08-01 02:31:35 UTC
The HOMEPAGE (http://www.ferite.org/) for dev-lang/ferite is unavailable (404 or otherwise unreachable).

This bug was opened by a partially-automated tool being developed to check for lint in Gentoo packages. This issue may seem trivial but it can affect user experience and may indicate a more significant problem with a package, like upstream development that has ceased.

I can CONFIRM that the domain name is no longer active for the project as I just visited it and it's apparently been purchased by what looks like a porn company.

The current active site is http://ferite.sourceforge.net/ which still describes itself as "ferite.org", so I assume domain registration lapsed, then was registered by this other company, and that this will be a permanent change.
