Description Ulrich Spoerlein 2008-09-08 18:50:02 UTC
Hello SecTeam,

the current format, in which portaudit is printing its URLs is a pain
in the ass to copy and paste anywhere. Usually a double click will
select the space delimited word under the cursor, but thanks to the
surrounding < > you cannot paste this into a browser easily.

I also haven't seen <http://foo> used anywhere with URLs, just with
email addresses. If there's no good reason to use <URL> please, please
drop the surrounding brackets.

Fix: This will update the portaudit(1) tool and the printing via ports make(1)
The webpage generating script would still need to be adjusted.

Whoops - that PR is rather ol. Sorry about that.

The changes to portaudit looks good. Assuming you have run-time tested =
it, it's approved, but also remember to bump PORTVERSION to X.Y.(Z+1). I =
don't know if you tried to commit to ports before - if in doubt feel =
free to ask :-).

The bsd.ports.mk part need to be handled separately as all such changes =
need to be portmgr approved.  I would probably suggest to either split =
that into a separate PR and assign that to portmgr.

I don't know of any... I know there are an SNMP module which can get =
port audit info, but I don't know how it works...

  Don't enclose URLs in <>, it makes them harder to copy&paste and URLs are
  not email addresses.
