and make them run.
Help is welcome

Hi, just saw this. I'm keeping an eye on it and am interested in helping where I can. I haven't yet looked at the code, but it's on my agenda in the coming couple of weeks.
What kind of testing is needed on this? I might be able to start there.
(Oh and this is my first time on FreeBSD Phabricator, so if I'm not doing this right, please do let me know)
@koobs: i have been searching the days for solutions to the error.
I'll use the days to think about whether to give up my commit bit, and just continue as a normal maintainer.
When a port is broken for more than 6 month, there is a normal procedure that mark it as deprecated and then remove it from the ports tree at expiration date. this is almost automatic; Note that every month there is a notice about this.
The main reason is there is no point in keeping broken ports in base that misdrive users, it is very easy to readd the port in the ports tree once a working version do exist again. It does not prevent anyone from working after the removal from the ports tree.
Btw now that we have overlay both in ports and poudriere (-devel) it is even more easy to work on such port outside of the tree and readd it later once it is working again.
This is the way things are being done in the ports tree since for ever (at least since before my time), nothing new here.
@joneum I hope you would reconsider, continue working on this and bringing it back to the tree once it is ready.
what are all these updates? :-)

I am interested into donating for the development of docker on FreeBSD. I am also willing to contribute some actual work, but I am not familiar with FreeBSD developer, but I am a software developer by profession.
Is there a better way to get into contact with the docker for FreeBSD developers? Is it desired that I would also contribute coding work? What would be the best way to get started?
