--- Comment #1 from Kubilay Kocak <koobs@FreeBSD.org> ---
Review items:

Upstream seem to be using a name (setup.py:name=pywrap) that's already
registered with PyPI [1][2], a different project, which is likely to be
problematic in various ways.

Probably worth pinging upstream about it if they're not already aware. Since
your port is named "cadquery-pywrap", there's slightly less of an issue, unless
and until upstream pick a different 'proper name' and we have to rename the
port. Better to get clarity on what they will call it as soon as possible.
Ideally its "cadquery-pywrap" :)

Upstream pins jinja ( 'jinja2==2.11.3',), modifying just the RUN_DEPENDS is
insufficient, and will break at runtime as soon as jinja is not that exact

Patch the upstream dependency version spec, and ask upstream to make this a
normal >= dependency

All the python (.py) files will need to be precompiled (pyc/pyo) prior to
installation using standard 'compileall' methods, as these will be generated at
first run time, and on pkg-deinstall be orphaned (as theyre not referenced in
the pkg-plist).

However, I would suggest trying to make the standard 'USE_PYTHON=distutils
autoplist concurrent' framework bits work, since upstream ships a setup.py,
that 'should just work'

If you need help #freebsd-ports and/or #freebsd-python on Libera IRC :)
