Description Andras Farkas 2016-10-12 02:13:30 UTC
The long description of this package, xorg-7.7_2 says "This is a
metaport for all the X.Org packages available in the ports tree."
However, xedit, a X.Org package, is not included in this metaport.
Thus, not all X.Org packages are included in xorg-7.7_2
This could be remedied by make xedit a requirement for xorg-7.7_2 or
by making a xorg-maximal package that requires it. Or it could be
remedied by changing the long description to say "This is a metaport
for many of the X.Org packages available in the ports tree."

I originally sent this email about it:
