editors/wily patch to add port

Wily is a mouse-oriented, text-based working environment for programmers. It lets you interact with your files, directories and other programs through mouse and keyboard operations on plain text.

It is based on Acme, the mouse-centric editing environment for the Plan 9 operating system.

Very low on dependencies (C, X11, Xt)

Attached is a patch to add the editors/wily port

Hi Karsten,

Are you aware that this port was deleted in 2011 [1]?

If the port is really to be restored, then by resurrecting (this can and should continue the history of the port at that time) ...

Note: this is not a new port, but a revival.

No problem :D
Comment 5 Karsten Pedersen 2021-06-05 00:28:18 UTC
Hi both,

Oh, my mistake. I did look first but never found the original. This port was put together from scratch.

Looking at the original now, it seems that it expired because it depended on Xg. I am not entirely sure why it did, this port only requires Xlib and Xt.

What I can do instead is submit a patch against the original to keep the history and remove dependence on Xg?

I have not revived a port before and there doesn't seem to be a section for it in the porter's handbook.

There use to be a 're-add section' in https://docs.freebsd.org/en/articles/committers-guide/#ports which looks to have been removed (possibly no longer relevent with git)
