Related to bug 228226 it seem pkg_cutleaves will exclude anything that doesn't match the following regex:


I believe this is trying to match portname-version.

The g was added to support github versioning gYYYYMMDD.  It appears there's a number of other ports that have "interesting" versioning schemes.  ex: universal-ctags: p5.9.20210815.0.   Changing the above regex to [gp] would fix it at least for this package's scheme.  However, that leaves ~100 oddly versioned packages left.

Looking at the output of:

   pkg rquery -r FreeBSD -a '%v %o' | grep -v "^[0-9g]"

You can see others that I would assume wouldn't be added to the exclude list.

Should the above regex allow at least the first couple characters after the - to be non-digits? 

Is it possible for $leavestokeep array to use $name instead of $file?  If so the regex wouldn't be required at all?
