PyCharm Professional port as a shell archive
There already is a port of PyCharm, namely devel/pycharm-ce. However that concerns the Community Edition. This port concerns the Professional Edition that includes many more tools for, among others, Python web frameworks, database tools, etc.
The Makefile is largely copied over from devel/pycharm-ce. The licensing part has been changed to match that of java/intellij-ultimate (another Jetbrains commercial product).
I've been using this new port extensively for over a week. Found only one issue that was easily solved by setting a custom property in PyCharm itself. This has been documented in pkg-message.in
Thank you Guido
Is the license for pycharm pro appropriate for ports, and/or packages?
(In reply to Kubilay Kocak from comment #1)
Good question. I had assumed so given the fact java/intellij-ultimate falls into the exact same category (same company, same product family) and I had copied the licensing bits from that port (originally submitted as bug #212268)
However, actually reading the license it seems redistribution is prohibited unless we have got written permission:
Hence I'll do the following:
- Later today I will update the port with the RESTRICTED flag set so that it can be committed to the ports tree. That way FreeBSD users will at least have a means to install this software.
- I'll contact Jetbrains in an effort to obtain written permission for redistribution. Should I get that I'll submit a new bug with with an update to this port.
Note: there might be an issue with devel/intellij-ultimate, it not being RESTRICTED where I now think it should be. Should I create a bug report for that?

Thanks for the feedback Guido. RESTRICTED sounds good for now, and I'd attach any permission obtained as an attachment on this bug, which you may re-open at any time (even after initial commit) to remove RESTRICTED.
You may alternatively, create a new issue adding this ones ID in its "See Also" field
While pending an updated patch, could you also confirm the port passes QA (portlint, poudriere in particular). Instructions and details are here: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/testing.html

PyCharm Professional port (update to: 2019.3.1 + RESTRICTED)
- Updated the initial port from version 2019.3 to 2019.3.1.
- Made the port RESTRICTED to comply with Jetbrains' license.
- Fixed plist issue brought to light by `poudriere testport`

Thank you for the pointer to poudriere. It revealed a small plist issue that is now fixed. Portlint is also happy.
While I was at it I updated the port to the latest patch level version of PyCharm.
I have got some initial feedback from Jetbrains regarding licensing and packaging. No approval as of yet. They first require more info from me regarding FreeBSD packaging and download statistics, how the port/package will be maintained, etc. Hence for now I'll keep this port with the RESTRICTED flag set.
Will update this issue should I get an approval or a rejection.

For what it is worth. The port, in its current RESTRICTED form, is good to go.
Is there anything else I need to do before this port is accepted into the ports tree?
@Guido Just a committer to self-assign and land it. Thank you for the updated patch and QA
