Thank you for your new port submission Vincent.

On initial review, the port as submitted doesn't pass portlint, failing a couple of basic checks.

I will resolve these myself, but for future reference, it helps immensely to have ports (new and updates) pass QA prior to submitting them here.

For more information and instructions, see:

Comment 2 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-02-08 10:57:42 UTC
The failing checks were:

use a tab (not space) after a variable name (several times)


WARN: /usr/home/koobs/repos/freebsd/ports/print/brlaser/pkg-plist: There are only 2 items in the plist.  Consider using PLIST_FILES instead of pkg-plist when installing less than 6 items.

I will run this port through additional QA and report back on results

  [NEW PORT] print/brlaser: Brother laser printer driver

  brlaser is a CUPS driver for Brother laser printers.

  Although most Brother printers support a standard printer language such
  as PCL or PostScript, not all do. If you have a monochrome Brother laser
  printer (or multi-function device) and the other open source drivers
  don't work, this one might help.

Committed with minor changes:

- fix spaces -> tabs
- Tweak COMMENT (to match upstream)
- Remove copyrights/license info from pkg-descr

Thanks Vincent!
