- You can never depend on lang/python3 directly.  Use
  BINARY_ALIAS=python3=${PYTHON_CMD} instead [1].

- Are you sure that USES=python:3.6+,build is right?  The port
  installs a bunch of Python files and has Python dependencies.
  Surely Python is needed at runtime too.

- Bad COMMENT [2]

- All of the USE_GITLAB stuff is too complicated and not needed.
  There are proper release tarballs at [3], i.e. eolie-0.9.52.tar.xz

- This could use an update to 0.9.60

- Maybe add yourself as maintainer

(In reply to Tobias Kortkamp from comment #1)

I have no idea how to convert gitlab staff to download 2 repos.
I dont know python that is why I do not set me as maintainer. :)

The point of switching to the release tarball is to not have to download from
2 repos.  See net-im/fractal and how it sets MASTER_SITES for an example.

You seem to know enough Python to be able to create a port of Eolie though.
The GNOME team is understaffed, so not sure if assigning it to gnome@ is
a good idea.  Let's at least CC them.
Comment 5 Alexey Dokuchaev freebsd_committer 2020-11-30 06:57:50 UTC
Actually, we don't have to deal with GitLab at all here, as the author makes traditional bootstrapped releases which include translation bits.  I'll try to get this done.

A commit references this bug:

Author: danfe
Date: Mon Nov 30 13:46:55 UTC 2020
New revision: 556642
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/556642

  Add a port of Eolie, simple web browser for GNOME.

  PR:	236183

Comment 7 Alexey Dokuchaev freebsd_committer 2020-11-30 13:55:39 UTC
Committed as ports r556642, thanks.  I've taken the liberty to fast-forward to the latest version and made other minor changes to the submitted port, e.g. dropped dependency on `devel/py-dateutil' as I don't see where it's being imported in the source code.  Please ping me if I've missed anything in my testing.

After some consideration, I've decided that having gnome@ as maintainer is okay since this port is little more than rather thin wrapper over WebKit and won't cause extra maintenance burden.
Comment 8 rozhuk.im 2020-12-01 01:37:45 UTC

Can it be removed or make as option?

(In reply to rozhuk.im from comment #8)
> Why?
Because it crashes without it, as you've already found out.

> Can it be removed or make as option?
Yes, it would be nice, but is there a better, leaner way to handle it than "settings = None" as in your patch?  Perhaps we can wait for the upstream fix?
Comment 12 rozhuk.im 2020-12-01 03:37:17 UTC
Ok, lets wait, I hope they fix it.
