Description Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-04-02 14:05:24 UTC
Hi Thomas,

Would change the hand-rolled Yes-no check to "checkyesno" from rc.subr(8)?


Also /usr/local in files/checkrestart.in should be changed to %%PREFIX%%.

Comment 1 Thomas Hurst 2020-04-02 15:36:22 UTC
Whoops, could have sworn I changed it to %%PREFIX%% before submission.

It's a periodic(8) script, so sourcing rc.subr and using checkyesno seems inappropriate - literally no other periodic script, neither in base nor ports, does so.  The case statement is the de-facto standard way to do it.

If there's to be something like this it should probably go in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf alongside check_yesno_period.

Patch to 0.5.0_1

Use %%PREFIX%% in checkrestart.in and bump PORTREVISION in case a user has modified LOCALBASE.

(In reply to Thomas Hurst from comment #1)
Tom, I think you're right.

Could you please change the script to use check_yesno_periodic similarly as it is done in security/base-audit?

Thanks for your understanding.

Alternate patch to 0.5.0_1 with security periodic script

This patch switches to check_yesno_period - and since doing so only makes sense in the context of a security periodic(8) script, that has been changed as well, along with an upgrade message notifying users of the change.
