I can't speak to the patch machinery, but I would really like to be able to enable SVTHEVC and SVTAV1 at the same time.  Thank you for submitting the patch, VVD.

Who can commit?

Moin moin 

The whole thing looks a bit overly complicated to me. Could anyone elaborate why this is necessary, and we cannot have a simple, single patch for this?

(In reply to Tobias C. Berner from comment #3)
Every SVT option depends on separate port: multimedia/svt-av1, multimedia/svt-hevc, multimedia/svt-vp9.
Comment 5 Conrad Meyer freebsd_committer 2020-06-10 16:25:17 UTC
The *patches* add options to the GNU autotools 'configure' script for each dependency.  The plugins can be configured disabled if the corresponding port OPTION is disabled.  I think this could be a simplified single patch, without removing OPTION flexibility.

You would just always apply the patch, but add:

Comment 6 Conrad Meyer freebsd_committer 2020-06-10 16:26:08 UTC
(*_CONFIGURE_ENABLE features are disabled if the port OPTION is disabled.)
Comment 7 Tobias C. Berner freebsd_committer 2020-06-10 17:00:12 UTC
As the patches are directly from upstream, and not "processed" as I assumed previously, I can live with multiple patches :)

But I would prefer to have them just always applied, without any need for the big if'fery that if that is possible.

Did you said about this way?

(In reply to VVD from comment #8)
Yes exactly! That looks way more maintainable to me.
