Description Keith White 2020-09-25 11:54:33 UTC
/usr/ports/UPDATING has AFFECTS: lines that use "database/..." instead of "databases/..." which means that utilities like pkg updating don't automatically display those sections.

The postgresql sections in particular have information that would be useful for casual use of "pkg updating".  One work-around, of course, is to use "pkg updating database/postgresql"

Hi Keith,

Thanks for reporting. I opened a Review in Phabricator[1] with a patch, which has to be reviewed by arrowd or tcberner.

Log:
  UPDATING: Correct the dirname database/* to databases/*

  In UPDATING, all sections which contain "database/..." instead of "databases/..." in the 'AFFECTS:' line, utilities like 'pkg updating' can't automatically display those sections.

  The postgresql sections in particular have information that would be useful for casual use of "pkg updating". One work-around, of course, is to use "pkg updating database/postgresql"

  While here, also correct some more occurrences.
