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?
Comment 2 Niclas Zeising freebsd_committer 2018-02-11 14:11:11 UTC
I'm not sure why it was added to x11@, but I'll have a look at it.
Comment 3 Robert James Hernandez 2018-02-15 06:47:44 UTC
Hi Niclas,

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!

Comment 4 Niclas Zeising freebsd_committer 2018-02-15 19:00:33 UTC
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.
Comment 5 Robert James Hernandez 2018-02-16 16:55:21 UTC
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.
Comment 7 Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2018-12-05 17:19:21 UTC
Let's try to upstream some patches not to pollute the tree unnecessarily: https://github.com/Ventto/mons/issues/30
Comment 8 Robert James Hernandez 2018-12-05 17:53:18 UTC
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.
