Delta Ports =========== This is a collection of patches and files that overlay and modify the FreeBSD Ports Collection in order to create a new product, DragonFly Ports. This repository is not intended to be useful by itself. Scripts will combine these overlays and patches to generate the final product. Organization: scripts: Directory contains shell scripts to generate final DPorts repository as well as a copy of the Tinderbox hooks ports: Directory contains sub-directories that correspond with Ports categories such as audio, editors, devel, etc. <category>: Subdirectory of ports directory. Examples include audio, editors, and devel subdirectories. <portname>: Subdirectory of <category> directory. It contains a mixture of five items: "STATUS" file, "Makefile.DragonFly" file, "dragonfly" directory, "diffs" directory, and "newport" directory. STATUS: File contains 3 lines. First line is equals "MASK" or "PORT" or "DPORT". "MASK" means the port will not have a counterpart in DPorts. Nothing further will be scanned, so following lines could be used as comments to explain. "PORT" means the port is derived from FreeBSD ports. "DPORT" means the port was created from scratch. The second line starts with "Last attempt: " and ends with the version and revision of the last build attempt. The third line starts with "Last success: " and ends with the version and revision of the last build success. The ending will be blank if the port never successfully built. dragonfly: Directory that serves same function as port's "files" directory. It will contain patches applies after the patches in the "files" directory and could also contain files as well. newport: Directory that contains a Makefile, distinfo, pkg-descr, and other files that comprise a port. There will be no "files" subdirectory, the dragonfly directory will be used instead. diffs: Directory that contains "diff" files. For example, distinfo.diff would modify the ports distinfo file and pkg-plist.diff would modify the pkg-plist file. The file names in this directory have to end with ".diff" . Makefile.DragonFly: This Makefile is included after the Port Makefile. It is used preferentially to Makefile.diff. REMOVE: A file optionally located inside the <diffs> directory that lists all the files to be remove after copying the port from FreeBSD. Its purpose is to avoid having to make a .diff file with the sole purpose of removing the to-be-modified file. Not only is this a big time-saver when a lot of patches need removing, it is more robust because any update FreeBSD guys do to the patch would break the dport generation. special: Directory that contains subdirectories such as Mk and Templates that are treated the same as <portname> directory.
