Patch for youtube_dl
Use GENTOO as MASTER_SITES as GitHub has locked down the youtube-dl repo.
Tested on FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT r364979 (amd64)
This is a quick band-aid, GENTOO mirror list needs to be cleaned up and we should probably look into using https://github.com/l1ving/youtube-dl (short term) or replace it with youtube-dlc ( https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/ir8ic6/youtubedlc_an_active_fork_of_youtubedl/g9v55og/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3 )
We're taking a different route...
Thank you for taking care of it. youtube_dl has legitimate uses too!
legitimate uses :)
Now, if you click on the Latest anchor on the home page, it will take you to http://abf-downloads.openmandriva.org/ytdl/ . Mandriva Linux?
I think that's a quick band-aid solution until GitHub repo isn't locked down.
The main reason I closed this PR is because there were some concerns that pointing to another mirror would potentially add fuel to the fire. Short-term would be to switch repo alternatively just point users to the fork (see PR link) until the issue is resolved. https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=250608
Some ports depend on it and are enabled by default. e.g. multimedia/mpv
We will probably have to cut them out.
I did add a symlink option for compatibility and convenience in youtube-dlc as not all applications aren't aware of the fork but it's not enabled by default however.
