Prepare for removal of CTM from FreeBSD-13

Authored by se on Nov 12 2018, 11:00 PM.



Add an entry to UPDATING (date to be fixed depending on commit date), mention creation of the port in the ctm.1 man-page and write a warning about the planned removal in FreeBSD-13 to STDERR.
These changes are planned to be committed to HEAD and then merged to 12 in time for 12.0.
CTM will then be removed from HEAD according to the already accepted review 17935.

Test Plan

Build world with the patches.
Run ctm binary and observe depreciation warning.
Check text added to UPDATING.

Can you bump the .Dd of ctm.1 for this content change? The rest of the man page looks fine, thanks!

Bump .Dd date in man-page as requested by bcr (Benedict Reuschling) and use the same date in UPDATING.
The date will be adjusted in both files, if the commit is delayed beyond Nov. 15.

Looks good. I have a couple of suggested tweaks that make things better imho, but if you don't like one or the other, you can ignore.
I trust whatever you decide, so I'm clicking 'accept' to not hold things up.

after replace "but" and everything after it:

and will be
provided as a port (misc/ctm) or package (ctm).

I don't think you need to mention the version in case we need to bump it for some reason.

I like imp@'s revisions. I am accepting either version though.

change ctm-2.0 to ctm if you make imp@'s other suggest change later to be consistent.
