Hedis, BoundedChan, bytestring-lexing and patch for bsd.hackage.mk

The port itself needs 2 further dependencies which I also supplied. Please take a careful look at it. I basically used a Haskell port as a template and adapted it.

Haskell ports also need a cabal entry in lang/ghc/bsd.hackage.mk (as far as I understood it). In the archive you'll find a diff of this file.

I used the latest versions and added very version dependencies that enforce the latest releases. Hedis has also some upper version restrictions for some modules. I am not sure how to specify them.

I verified that the API to a Redis server actually works. I could make some entries in the DB, so I am pretty sure that everything is OK.

Added missing dependencies on fresh installations

hs-hedis has some missing dependencies on fresh installations. This should solve it.

please submit a shar file for a new port as outlined here:

New port: databases/hs-hedis

The instructions there don't make much sense for my submission, but I try to follow them as good as I can. Also notice that a patch needs to be used for a file in lang/ghc. This is not a new port but a correction to make cabal function properly in ports.

Comment 7 John Marino freebsd_committer 2014-11-01 14:57:55 UTC
how you broke it up makes complete sense.  However, you created 3 new ports and assigned a third party to be the maintainer (haskell@) which is not allowed.

I will assign this PR to haskell@ and they can figure out if they want to maintain them, if they agree with the changes, etc.
Comment 8 Gabor Pali freebsd_committer 2014-11-01 16:11:35 UTC
Thank you, John, I think we could handle this and are fine with the maintainership.  Please give me some time to review and test the ports then add them to the Ports Collection.
