Mons Port Diff
This is a port of mons 0.6.2: https://github.com/Ventto/mons which is a shell script to quickly manage multiple monitors.
It's been a useful tool for my laptop since I'd rather not have to install a GUI app and all the dependencies just to mirror my laptop display with the projector.
Please let me know if there's anything I missed, this is my first port!
Anyone mind taking a look at this?
I'm not sure why it was added to x11@, but I'll have a look at it.
This port is dependent on xrandr which was why I thought it belonged in x11@. If you would like me to move it to another section of ports just let me know!
The category x11 is correct. I was referring to this PR being assigned to the x11@ team. The x11@ team is the maintainers of the core xorg ports, but this PR can be handled by anyone.
I hope this explanation makes it a bit clearer.
Apologies if I came off as a bit harsh in my previous comment.
Ahh gotcha, well I appreciate you taking a look at this even though it ended up on the wrong list!
And don't worry, it didnt come off harsh at all. I just wanted to make sure it was clear why I place it in the x11 section of ports.
Assignee timeout. Give back to pool.
Let's try to upstream some patches not to pollute the tree unnecessarily: https://github.com/Ventto/mons/issues/30
Thanks for picking this up Mateusz! I like the idea of fixing the hardcoding paths in upstream.
Im happy to work with you to get this added to ports as well.
