Description Enji Cooper freebsd_committer 2013-09-10 01:10:00 UTC
Trying to work around a design caveat at work, I did some digging and found out I could pass EXTRA_PKG_ARGS to pass -X appropriately to exclude some files with pkg_install. Problem is that an equivalent isn't readily available for pkgng, and because of how the targets are constructed it's not apparent how I would be able to exclude files in the pkgng manifest.

A framework for excluding files should be provided that works with both pkg_install and pkgng.

Well this is a feature request, there is a mechanism planned for one day.
I kept this ticket open, not to forget, you are right I should have at least ack it.

time flies and still no progress here, this is in the todo list for a while and is being kept in the todo list until someone find time to implement. there is no value to keep this ticket open, so I will close it.
