Description Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2020-09-28 13:29:19 UTC
Bas Arts suggested that textproc/docproj and textproc/minixmlto might benefit from switching to textproc/py-html2text. We should investigate if textproc/py-html2text is a good candidate for a modern replacement for textproc/html2text.
Comment 1 Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2021-01-16 22:33:13 UTC
From what I recall, the reason why we stick to textproc/html2text for textproc/minixmlto is to avoid Python dependency being added to minixmlto, which is meant to be a minimal package.

We may revisit this ticket in the future if necessary.
