Created attachment 216705 [details]
port patch

Original PSSH is dead. There are multiple patches exist in the internet that will probably never land. Instead of digging it follow Fedora way - use the most viable fork of the original PSSH maintained by 'lilydjwg' github user. It incorporated those patches and looks really alive!
- upstream to switch to the most viable fork by lilydjwg
- take the latest release
- remove upstreamed patches
- take maintanership
- update pkg-descr to reflect the changes
- drop python 2 support since the fork works only with 3.5+

Any objections to this?
Comment 3 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-08-07 09:48:03 UTC
Thanks for the patch.

The upstream project, seems to provide releases (https://github.com/lilydjwg/pssh/releases/tag/v2.3.4).

Would you change the patch to use MASTER_SITES instead of USE_GITHUB?

(In reply to Fernando Apesteguía from comment #3)
I didn't understand how to use MASTER_SITES instead of USE_GITHUB.
There are no examples on Porters Handbook (at least I counld't find them) and I couldn't find other existing port which does it.
Could you please explain a bit more?
Comment 5 timp87 2020-08-07 13:12:28 UTC
Moreover if I set MASTER_SITES to https://github.com/bla/bla then ports framework complains that I'm going it wrong and I should use USE_GITHUB instead

/!\ pssh-2.3.4: Makefile warnings, please consider fixing /!\ 
MASTER_SITES contains https://github.com/lilydjwg/pssh/archive/, please use
USE_GITHUB instead.

Try something like this:

MASTER_SITES=   https://github.com/lilydjwg/pssh/releases/download/v${PORTVERSION}/

(In reply to Fernando Apesteguía from comment #6)
Seems like release made a bit wrong since there are no assets there
Comment 8 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-08-07 18:33:14 UTC
(In reply to timp87 from comment #7)
Yes, I seems the release is not viable. Thanks for checking though. Build testing...
