This tap was deprecated because Homebrew 1.1.12 provides the commands necessary to show old versions of formulae and because this tap required maintenance overhead and had poor usability.

Can someone please describe what those new brew commands are because I am genuinely interested in using them.

@halfnibble Basically just brew install, brew info, brew search now handle deleted formulae. In your case you probably want brew log or just git log.

I can't seem to install a previously deleted formula (apt-cacher-ng) now that boneyard is gone. Am I missing something?

$ brew install apt-cacher-ng
Error: No available formula with the name "apt-cacher-ng" 
==> Searching for a previously deleted formula...
Error: No previously deleted formula found.
==> Searching for similarly named formulae...
Error: No similarly named formulae found.
==> Searching taps...
Error: No formulae found in taps.
$ brew search apt-cache
No formula found for "apt-cache".

@danielkza We intentionally don't support installation of deleted formulae. You will need to recreate the formula yourself.
