gmid port and {G,U}IDs bits


Please find attached the port for gmid, a server for the Gemini protocol.  Apologies for any mistakes, I'm not familiar with the FreeBSD port infrastructure, but I read and followed the handbook :)

The diff includes also some bits for /usr/ports/{G,U}IDs: I'm registering the first free uid (287) for the user and group _gmid.

In particular the attached patch was generated with `svn diff' because I haven't found documentation on how to switch to the git tree (https://www.freebsd.org/ports/installing/ still mentions svn).

Note: I'm also the developer of gmid.  It probably sound a bit obnoxious to submit a port too, but since I have some friends that are trying to use gmid on freebsd, I thought it would be helpful to have a package available.  it would also be the first gemini server in the port tree :)

The FreeBSD Ports tree has since converted to git a while back. The UID you used for gmid in your patch has already been taken by another port.

IMHO it's a good idea to rebase your patch on git.

Comment 3 Omar Polo 2021-04-27 18:09:34 UTC

I've just uploaded an updated diff generated from the git tree.  I'm sorry about the svn diff, I still had the svn tree in /usr/ports and https://www.freebsd.org/ports/installing/ still mentions subversion.  I've re-checked the handbook and it actually shows how to check out with git, I missed that, apologies.

Comment 5 Neel Chauhan freebsd_committer 2021-04-27 18:15:17 UTC

A few things to keep in mind for the future:

 * The $FreeBSD$ line is no longer needed, as FreeBSD now uses git, and the said line is for Subversion

 * It's a good idea to check your port via portlint and portfmt/portclippy.

I have re-formatted your port for you, but it's a good idea if you do it.
