Created attachment 222025 [details]

The PT Public Pack https://www.paratype.com/collections/pt/44157 includes new typefaces PT Astra Sans/Serif and PT Root UI, and has reasonable file names instead of whatever weird abbreviations were there in the previous downloads.

Unfortunately the download requires a Referer header, looks like this is the first use of `FETCH_ENV+= HTTP_REFERER=…` in the ports tree. Also there's no version number anywhere for the collection, so I went ahead with the download ID.

I am worried that the download ID, which is used as PORTVERSION here, might changed or even go backward. For this situation I suggest we use a customized version or snapshot date. What do you think? Also I suggest appending a meaningful filename suffix for the distfile.

Okay, date is fine.

How do you rename downloaded files in the ports framework? I haven't noticed any feature that allows doing this yet…
