>Description:

Is there any reason for pkgsrc tracking an ancient (orphaned) version 0.15
of id3, while there seems to be an actively maintained version at
https://squell.github.io/id3/ ?

I have not compared the versions, but ran into differences (better command
line handling in the newer version) while upstreaming changes for audio/abcde
bugs.

 That seem to me to be two different programs with the same name. The
 one in audio/id3 has as author Robert Woodcock, newest copyright date
 around 2000.

 The one on github is by Marc Schoolderman, earliest copyright 2003.

 That being said, I have no problem replacing the old one with the new one.

 Btw, is there a reason this is a PR and not a mail to pkgsrc-users? :)
