The port create template currently creates a pkg-plist file with a $FreeBSD$ header, which is no longer in use.
Assign to maintainer
Created attachment 146480 [details]
replace comment in pkg-plist template with erroring line.
Replace @comment $FreeBSD$ with "/you/have/to/check/what/port/create/gives/you"
ports-mgmt/porttools 'port create' script uses devel/newfile to create new ports, and that one contains the deprecated template in /data/projects/port@pkg-plist.
Patch attached replaces "@comment $FreeBSD$" with /you/have/to/check/what/port/create/gives/you, in line with Mk/Scripts/check-stagedir.sh.
xmj, if you are the maintainer and you provided the solution via patch, why didn't you just commit it? Why throw it back on the triage heap?
koobs, I don't know what xmj's intention was (and he's not saying). You opened the PR, it's patch-ready according to him, so go ahead and commit it. I'm assigning it to you.
marino, because I'm not sure the patch covers koobs' intentions in reporting and I'd hoped to get feedback from him on it.
xmj: You attached a new patch and changed the PR to "patch-ready". Nobody would interpret this to mean a review is expected. This should be moved back to "in discussion" or something if it's not ready for a final commit review.
xmj@, patch looks good, please submit as a review (URL linked in a comment once created). Since devel/newfile has no maintainer, you are good to take care of it.
