Maintainer feedback?
Comment 2 Niclas Zeising freebsd_committer 2018-01-13 23:00:43 UTC
I'll look into this.  There's a couple of other xorg ports with PRs for CPE info, I'll do them in one go.

what is the current status?
Does ports-secteam have to be active here?

This has probably just been dropped.  I'm not sure how useful CPE info is, but there is no harm in adding it.

I do believe the vendor should be x, not x.org though.

(In reply to Niclas Zeising from comment #6)

After a closer look, it seems like both x and x.org is used.  I'll double check with ports secteam on which is preferred.

Sorry for spam.  Looking through the ports tree, we have used x as vendor.

  x11-fonts/xfs: Add CPE info

  Add CPE info to xfs.  Use x as vendor, since that's what's used through out
  the ports tree.  Looking at the NVD CPE database, both x and x.org seem to
  be used.

CPE info has been added.  Sorry for dropping this one on the floor, and thanks for the reminder!

I am currently trying to fix and add CPE information all over the portstree and just noticed that the CPE info for x11-fonts/xfs was added incorrectly.

CPE_VENDOR is nothing that we decide on but is coming from the CPE Dictionary and the correct value for this port is "x.org" - so the submitted patch was correct. I've fixed it in the portstree in a71a0b5.
