./pkgtools/pkglint, Verifier for NetBSD packages

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.7.1, Package name: pkglint-5.7.1, Maintainer: rillig

pkglint checks whether a pkgsrc package conforms to the various
conventions established over the years. It produces warnings, errors and
notes and, upon request, explains them.

Before importing a new package or making changes to an existing package,
pkglint should be run in the package's directory to check for common
errors.


Required to run:
[devel/go-check]

Log message:
pkgtools/pkglint: update to 5.7.1

Changes since 5.7.0:

* Removed a line of code that was meant only for development, not for
  production use, from util.go.

Log message:
pkgtools/pkglint: update to 5.7.0

Changes since 5.6.12:

* Many of the -C and -W command line options have been removed since
  they are not used in practice. The -Wall and -Call options continue
  to work though; these are the only options mentioned in the pkgsrc
  guide.

* When a PLIST file contains redundant libtool libraries (.la and the
  corresponding .so), there is only a single warning per file.

* Warnings about the package COMMENT are now strictly ordered from left
  to right.

* The hashes for all distfiles must now contain the SHA512 hash. This
  hash has been added to many distfiles in 2015. It's time now to
  enforce it on all other distfiles as well.

* Makefile fragments that are included inside an .elif exists(...)
  are not reported as missing.

* The check for redundant variables and accidentally overwritten
  variables has been improved. Now the warning occurs at the later
  definition. This especially applies to cases where a file is included
  and after that, some of its variables are overridden. Variables in
  unrelated files are no longer marked as redundant.

* When a package contains multiple definitions of a single variable
  (typical for Makefile.common), the later definition overrides the
  earlier definition. That way, the location of DISTINFO_FILE and
  PATCHDIR is resolved correctly.

Log message:
pkgtools/pkglint: update to 5.6.12

Changes since 5.6.11:

* In buildlink3.mk files, print the paths relative
  to the line, not to the pkgsrc root.

* When explaining that a variable cannot be set/used because of wrong
  permissions, list the permissions. This provides more transparency
  than just stating that the desired action is not allowed.

* When pkglint checks a pkgsrc-wip package, don't warn about malformed
  lines in doc/CHANGES-* since pkgsrc-wip users typically cannot do
  anything about these errors.

* In profiling mode, not only the code coverage and the performance
  statistics are dumped, the whole heap is also dumped to see which
  parts of pkglint consume the most heap memory. Pkglint now needs
  less heap memory than before, which mainly affects full scans.

* The checks for absolute pathnames have gone. They were of questionable
  value since pkglint has failed to give proper advice on how to fix
  them properly, at least for the last 12 years.

* The check that pkgsrc-wip packages should only use exact CVS Ids
  (the unexpanded variant) has been disabled again. It occurred about
  16000 times but even fixing it wouldn't improve anything since it
  was mostly a formatting issue without any practical consequences.

* Warn about trailing variable modifiers like in ${VAR:S,from,to,extra}.

* Properly parse ${VAR:!command!}.

* Suggest to replace SUBST_SED with SUBST_VARS where possible, even
  with complicated shell quoting. Pkglint can autofix most of these
  overly verbose cases.

* Load builtin.mk whenever the corresponding buildlink3.mk file is
  included. This fixes several warnings about undefined variables
  (especially for packages using OpenSSL).

* Parse .for lines like bmake does since 2015, splitting words like
  in brk_string.

* Optionally show a warning even if it cannot be autofixed by pkglint.
  This is useful for the SUBST_VARS replacement since even when
  pkglint cannot automatically replace the code, there are still cases
  where it can warn at least.

* As always, several refactorings.

Log message:
pkgtools/pkglint: update to 5.6.11

Changes since 5.6.10:

* Improved the wording of several warnings

* Fixed parsing of complicated dependency patterns such as
  {ssh{,6}-[0-9]*,openssh-[0-9]*}. Pkglint still doesn't understand
  them but at least it doesn't mark them as "unknown" anymore.

* Lots of refactoring, as usual. This is the last part of the big
  refactoring, therefore future changes to pkglint are expected to be
  smaller than in the previous 3 months.

Log message:
pkgtools/pkglint: update to 5.6.10

Changes since 5.6.9:

* ALTERNATIVES files are correctly checked now. Before, pkglint had
  suggested to remove the @PREFIX/ from the alternative, which was
  wrong and simply didn't work.

* Diagnostics about variable assignments are ordered to report the
  left-hand side first and then everything to the right of the
  assignment operator.

* The pkglint output is escaped properly to avoid sending unwanted
  escape sequences to the terminal.

* The items in .for loops are parsed taking "double" and 'single'
  quotes into account since bmake does it in the same way since 2015.

* In DESCR files, overly long lines are only warned about if they
  contain a space and therefore can be made shorter.

* In DESCR files, text like ${PREFIX} only gets a note if it refers
  to a commonly known pkgsrc variable. This avoids distraction when
  a package mentions ${prefix}/bin or ${template.property}.

* Lots of refactorings and small changes.
