Description Trevor Johnson 2002-06-10 13:50:01 UTC
This category, described as "financial applications," is to help users
find software with which to manage their money and become wealthy like
Matt Dillon.  I have identified fifteen existing ports which would be
suitable for this category:

 1.        ports/deskutils/cbb
 2.        ports/deskutils/gnofin
 3.        ports/deskutils/gnucash
 4.        ports/deskutils/kmymoney2
 5.        ports/deskutils/moneydance
 6.        ports/deskutils/xinvest
 7.        ports/math/p5-Math-Financial
 8.        ports/misc/p5-Finance-Quote
 9.        ports/misc/emma
10.        ports/misc/gnomepm
11.        ports/misc/qhacc
12.        ports/misc/quantlib
13.        ports/misc/wmstock
14.        ports/misc/xquote
15.        ports/x11/stockticker_applet

The eight ports in the catch-all misc and x11 categories could be
repo-copied into finance/.  If this category should be rejected,
consideration should be given to repo-copying them into deskutils/.

The idea for this came from NetBSD.  I brought it up on the ports list
recently.  I have seen no responses.

Adding to audit trail, from misfiled PR ports/56259:

 The category was created long ago, and some of the ports listed in
 this PR were repocopied, but not all.  In addition, kmymoney2 has been
 deleted in the meantime, and a few others added, as summarized below.
 So, possibly the following should be considered for being repocopied;
 or, at the very least, should have the 'finance' category added to
 their Makefiles.
