This is primarily a bug fix update. From the Changes file:
1.7 Tue Jul 18 19:45:00 2006
- Following some useful e-mail discussions with Mark Linimon
and Dan Langille, switch to using the MASTER_PORT variable
to detect master/slave relationships between ports.
MASTER_PORT will be set in every slave port whereas
MASTERDIR doesn't have to be. Here a slave port is one
defined as using port metadata from some other port, and
doesn't have to go as far as requiring both master and slave
to use the same Makefile and other ports infrastructure.
1.7 Sat Jul 22 20:13:00 2006
- Keep track of the version of the software used to create the
cache, and prompt for a cache rebuild if the software has
been upgraded since. A cache rebuild is definitely required
for the 1.6 -> 1.7 update.
1.7 Sun Jul 23 10:56:00 2006
- Don't quit on errors parsing make variables at the cache-init
or cache-update stage. Print copious error messages, but carry
on processing. Entries for ports that fail at this stage will
not be created in the cache.
There will be a number of error messages similar to the following when
running cache-init or cache-update:
FreeBSD::Portindex::Port:new_from_make_vars():/usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-gentoo-stage1(linux_base-gentoo-stage1-2006.0_2) -- warning MASTER_PORT=/usr/ports/emulators/linux_dist-gentoo-stage1/ not in expected format
These are warnings only, and no cause for alarm. This release of
FreeBSD::Portindex works around the problem and inserts a corrected
value into the cache.
Committed. Thank you.
