Description Chris Hutchinson 2014-04-24 04:20:00 UTC
This is a request for the recently removed archivers/bzip port.
I have the original source, and until, or unless archivers/bzip2
offers the same options, I'd like to keep this port available.
It also requires typing one less character to invoke it, than
bzip2 does. ;)

I'd also like to see if it might [ever] be possible to merge
this with bzip2.

Patch to follow (as a reply) within a few minutes.



Use the patch I will post as a reply to this pr(1).
How-To-Repeat: Any attempt to build, will fail.

note: the shar file contains a new MASTER_SITE.  Lack of distfile which was the original reason the port was removed.

ugh, I was close to committing this when I noticed patch-aa, patch-ab, patch-ac.  I renamed patch-aa and patch-ab, then discovered patch-ac patches the exact same file as former patch-ab.

Very ugly.  I will have to combine patch-ab and patch-ac now.

New revision: 357450
URL: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/357450

  Resurrect archivers/bzip and assign maintainer

  This port was removed due not having a publically available distfile.
  That has been fixed per the PR with maintainership assigned to submitter.


    * The patch-aa was renamed
    * The patch-ab and patch-ac touched the same file; they were combined
      and renamed
    * DragonFly support was added (hence the portrevision bump)
    * GPLv2 license was annotated
    * 80-column formatting was respected
    * PLIST sorted
