Description Graham Perrin 2019-09-07 06:10:09 UTC
Nit, at the tail of the first paragraph: 


– the trailing . causes the link to not redirect as expected
Comment 1 Graham Perrin 2019-09-07 06:18:09 UTC
Sorry, preview didn't work so I couldn't predict that the link in comment 0 would not represent the link at FreshPorts web page. 

The end result of following the link is: 

https://wiki.gnome.org/Orca. with a trailing period, a page that does not exist.

URL's at the end of sentences, a renderers (and grammaticist) worst nightmare.

  accessibility/orca: Fix pkg-descr ending with a URL

  A URL ending a sentence, with a full stop after it, causes pain
  for renderers such as freshports.org and other clients that may hyperlink

  Since the same URL is just below it in the pkg-descr WWW URL, amend
  the sentence to point to it instead.

Thank you for the report Graham

If you're feeling up to it, a search for this kind of issue in other ports pkg-descr's across the whole tree might be good to get all of these in one go/PR :)
