Comment 2 John Hein 2021-05-29 14:01:49 UTC
More gnome ports that were updated to 40.* are not fetching either (graphics/eog, editors/gedit, ...).

A recent change to Mk/bsd.sites.mk to address this [1] has been reverted [2], but not all the port updates to 40.* who needed the change were reverted.  So now fetches are broken for all of them.

This seems like a bit of a mess which started because of not following procedures.  I don't see any references to discussions, reviews or PRs for any of these commits (including the various updates to individual gnome/glib ports).

[1] See commit 7eacfa59f9ec5a9f60a492586b0ac201dc0c8cc5 - the bsd.sites.mk part was a "sneak attack" commit that was not documented.  It probably should have been a separate commit (and was committed without approval [2]).

[2] See commit d6ab5eccc3e393be11900b5565888bc5d0da9612.  This reverted the bsd.sites.mk part of [1], and so now all the gnome 40.* updates that occurred after [1] have broken fetches as a result.
Comment 3 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2021-05-29 14:11:30 UTC
The correct way to fix this *in a port* is by writing:

 MASTER_SITES=  GNOME/sources/${PORTNAME}/${PORTVERSION:C/^([0-9]+)\..*/\1/}

(In reply to Mathieu Arnold from comment #3)
Yes, thanks.

This is a duplicate anyway.  My narrow search didn't find any of the similar bugs, and now addressed in https://reviews.freebsd.org/D30514
