Patch for taisei

Adapt Makefile to follow Porters Handbook more closely
Switch to upstream release archive as recommended by Porters Handbook (USE_GITHUB section)
Pet portlint

Tested with default port settings using Poudriere (12.3, amd64)
Comment 1 Dmitry Marakasov freebsd_committer 2022-05-16 09:59:39 UTC
Switching from USE_GITHUB is a major pessimization, USE_GITHUB is always preferred over tarballs for:
- consistency (contents and layout are stable and predictable; there's no variance in topmost directory name, there are no generated files included, and there are no files omitted from the distribution)
- security (no need to trust extra parties which produce the tarballs, and the contents are trivial to verify)
- flexibility (trivial to switch to a specific commit or a fork)

Other changes are noop and do no bring any good, so rejected, sorry.
Comment 2 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2022-05-16 10:33:32 UTC
USE_GITHUB is not preferred, quote from Porters Handbook section 5.4.3

"5.4.3. USE_GITHUB

If the distribution file comes from a specific commit or tag on GitHub for which there is no officially released file, there is an easy way to set the right DISTNAME and MASTER_SITES automatically."

Other changes are related to Porters Handbook guidelines and/or portlint which is also used with Poudriere and have its own section in Porters Handbook, 10.3. Portlint. If you have disagreements with Porters Handbook please submit a PR about it upstream. We all benefit in the end we try to adhere to it as much as possible for consistency.

> quote from Porters Handbook section

For the note, there's not a single word about the preference.

"for which there is no officially released file", file here refers to "distribution file" mentioned earlier in the same sentence.

Best regards,

Again, nothing about preference.
Comment 6 Daniel Engberg freebsd_committer 2022-05-16 15:45:25 UTC
It is given the context, placement and phrasing in Porters Handbook. The complete section is placed after "5.4.2. MASTER_SITES" so if you read Porters Handbook top down you'll get to that section before "5.4.3. USE_GITHUB". It's also intended as a subsitutue as the phrasing goes "for which there is no officially released file". The officially released file is the distrbution file (archive/tarball) provided by upstream.

Best regards,
