awscli's patch file

'aws help' required groff, but it's toooo big dependencies for 'help'.
I wrote a simple patch using mandoc(1) instead of groff(1).
So no dependency on textprof/groff.

And, I feel unkindness to use auto-complete for awscli,
I think that should be display how to auto-complete.

Thank you for the report and patch.

Is there a chunk missing for pkg-message to "display how to auto-complete." ?

I rewrote awscli/help.py's patch.
Because I'll pull-request to upstream.
Comment 4 Bradley T. Hughes freebsd_committer 2019-09-24 20:01:53 UTC
This is a very nice change. The groff run-time dependency is heavy, and I would happily change it to use mandoc. Upstreaming this change would be a good idea, too, and if you haven't already, I will happily do so.

Thanks for the patches, I'll start getting them ready for commit now :)

  Add patch from PR 240664 to use mandoc instead of groff, and remove the
  DOCS option and runtime dependency on groff. Bump PORTREVISION due to
  the change in package dependencies.

  While here, add pkg-message with instructions on how to enable auto-
  complete for awscli.
