Examples shouldn't be a flavor. Can you revise the patch and resubmit?

Portlint OK.
Poudriere tests are OK on 10amd64 and 11amd64 with gui and cli flavors too.

Comment 11 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2018-04-07 18:42:07 UTC
Commits for new flavor-types need portmgr-approval. It's unclear to me if this cli/gui versioning shouldn't better be done using options instead of flavors.

I think the gui-cli split is useful (at least for me :) ).
I use fet once a year for about a month (I'm a teacher and I used to create the my school's timetable) and my workflow is:
- create the fet-file (which stores the datas: list of teacher, students, rooms, activities, etc.) using Qt-gui (it's easier than editing XML-files manually)
- upload the fet-file to a server (VPS) and the server (hopefully) will generates the timetable

The GUI on server is unnecessary but on my desktop the GUI is essential. So I would install fet-gui on desktop and fet-cli on server (and wouldn't need to install it from ports). This split is similar to editors/vim (GTK2) and editors/vim-console (without any GUI).
As the Porter's Handbook writes: "a port can have a normal version with many features and quite a few dependencies, and a light “lite” version with only basic features and minimal dependencies" and "If a port has a “lite” slave port, the slave port can be removed, and the port can be converted to flavors with...".
Comment 13 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2018-06-20 11:23:11 UTC
The package does not have to be built differently to get both cli and gui, it just builds them, or not.

So, this is not flavors, this is subpackages, which is a feature we do not have yet, and for which flavors will not be used.
Comment 14 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2018-06-20 11:24:14 UTC
To give you an example of possible flavors, it would be, for this port, qt4/qt5, you cannot build both at the same time, you have to choose one of the other.
