--- Comment #32 from Kubilay Kocak <koobs_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
Hi Daniel, thanks for updating the patch

A few review items:

COMMENT should match upstream setup.py:description modulo portlint

    setup.py: description="Graphical client for the Soulseek file sharing

Use MASTER_SITES=CHEESESHOP if a Python package is registered on PyPI, unless
there is a compelling (temporary) case not to. [1]

Use PKGNAMEPREFIX, unless there is a compelling case not to. [2]

A dd python as a secondary category, unless there is a compelling reason not
to. [3]  

Don't restrict USES=python:<version-spec> (currently only 3.8). <version-spec>
is declarative ("supports" <version-spec> versions) not imperative ("use"
<version-spec> versions). Upstream defines python_requires='>=3.5', (setup.py)

All dependency <version-spec>'s should be defined as completely and accurately
as possible to match upstreams declarations [5] . One example here is: 

  setup.py: install_requires=['PyGObject>=3.18'],

Related: Where are the dependencies for mutagen/miniupnpc declares?

GH_* defaults to PORTNAME and PORTVERSION already, and are unnecessary:


Python ports should use autoplist and (concurrent where necessary) [6] unless
there is a compelling reason not to

Related, USE_PYTHON=concurrent must be used when a Python port installs files
that are not Python-version specific in shared locations [7]. This one does:


The default concurrent files list may not pick up some of the above, so you may
need to add entries to UNIQUE_FILES / UNIQUE_DIRS or related variables. See:
/usr/ports/Mk/Uses/python.mk:concurrent and /usr/ports/Mk/Uses/uniquefile.mk

As far as what else would be good to progress this port, confirmation of QA
(portlint and poudriere) [8] would be great. Test with both the default and a
non-default Python version

If you need help with respect to this port, porting in general or other Python
ports, just jump on our #freebsd-ports and/or #freebsd-python IRC [9] channels.
