dports-download is supposed to be able to download a tarball of dports (in the event that git isn't available), but it has a dependency on dports-check, which has a dependency on git-check, which fails if git isn't installed.

  • File patch-Makefile.usr added

Would something like this patch work for you ?

First this check for dports directory existence in dports-check, not dports/.git, which for the same reason you mention shouldn't exist. Then I removed the dependency to git-check.
Then I changed the dependency of dports-create-shallow to a new target : dports-check-shallow, that has git-check has a dependency.

I wasn't sure about the name of the new target. Let me know what do you think of that.

This looks good to me. Thank you!

The latest patch is indeed an improvement for the dports-download target.
Unfortunately, it also removes the dports-create target git check.

dports-create depends on git being present.
IMHO, it would be better to add a dports-download check than to modify the existing dports-check one.

Hello ftigeot,

thanks for taking the time to review my patch.
Here is a new one that adds a dports-download check target as you suggested.
I added a second one that adds a test for /usr/DragonflyBSD-DPorts-* dirs, as I noticed that if you break dports-download during the extraction of the .tar.gz archive, you end up with a temporary dir like this, and it makes the mv command failed next time it's run. As such :
rm -f /tmp/dports.tar.gz
fetch -o /tmp/dports.tar.gz
fetch: size of remote file is not known
/tmp/dports.tar.gz 42 MB 3535 kBps 00m13s
tar -xf /tmp/dports.tar.gz -C /usr
mv /usr/DragonFlyBSD-DPorts-* /usr/dports
usage: mv [-f | -i | -n] [-hv] source target
mv [-f | -i | -n] [-v] source ... directory
