Description Ben Grimm 2010-10-30 01:40:08 UTC
See http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=18868 for description. Summary: 'portmaster -e glob\*' only seems to work when /var/db/pkg is the current working directory. If it is any other directory, it appears to expand (erroneously) in *that* directory instead of matching entries in /var/db/pkg.


Anchor the functionality of portmaster -e in /var/db/pkg/ instead of cwd.

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    ports-mgmt/portmaster Makefile distinfo 
  Upgrade to version 3.2
  Bug Fixes
  1. Properly handle +IGNOREME files again
  2. In safe_exit() only print the restart hint if -n PM_NEEDS_UPDATE
  1. For -F, a better message for spawned children, and continue the campaign
  to do less irrelevant stuff.
  2. Add some whitespace to the "All ports are up to date" message for -a
  3. Make it clear in the docs that -e only handles single ports, and
     use the enhanced features of find_glob_dirs() to return better error
     messages if a glob doesn't match one and only one port. (Problem
     mentioned in PR.)
