Description Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2015-12-06 11:51:24 UTC
For this very simple port:

This error occurs without the patch:
> # make check-plist
> ====> Checking for pkg-plist issues (check-plist)
> ===> Parsing plist
> ===> Checking for items in STAGEDIR missing from pkg-plist
> Error: Orphaned: @dir bandit
> ===> Checking for items in pkg-plist which are not in STAGEDIR
> Error: Missing: bandit
> ===> Error: Plist issues found.
> *** Error code 1

The cause is the empty bandit= tag in setup.cfg:
> [files]
> data_files = 
>         bandit =

I am not familiar with 'autoplist', somebody should take a look why this empty tag triggers the error in plist.

Is this still relevant? Yuri, can you assess?
