Description John Marino freebsd_committer 2015-03-06 08:55:49 UTC
Hi Kris,

The description for this port is "PC-BSD QT5 Utilities".

As a consumer, I don't know if these are useful outside of PC-BSD or not, what utilities it contains, what those utilities are supposed to do, etc.

I think the pkg-descr file should contain information like that.  Can this description be brought up to par?

P.S. The reason I ask is that the port failed to build because it doesn't honor flags or build environment (i forget which).  I don't even know if I should bother to provide a fix because I can't figure out what the port does.  The github readme that the WWW links to provides some idea in a rather jumbled fashion but the pkg-descr should be standalone IMO
