import a new port to the ports cvs
portimport is used to import the
directories and files of a new port to the OpenBSD
repository, avoiding common mistakes. It has to be executed from within the
new port's directory.
portimport calls the
portcheck(1) internally to verify that directory and file structure
for a port is in place and that no bogus files exist, and also to detect the
PKGPATH for a port.
The import is done in two steps. In the first step, the
-n option of the cvs command is used to only check
for possible problems without changing anything and shows the cvs path where
the new port will be imported. In the second step, the current ports
directory is imported to the OpenBSD ports cvs
repository. After the import, the new port is checked out in the respective
directory of the local ports tree.
The following options are available:
- Forces the given directory to be treated as ports root directory. Passed through to portcheck(1).
- Set the username used for ssh(1), and to compose vendor and release tags. Defaults to the local username.
This command is based on the portimport script of Marc Espie, lightly modified by Stuart Henderson and rewritten by Robert Peichaer. Later, actual checks were moved to a separate utility, portcheck(1).
