Recently in upgrading x11-wm/xmonad and x11-wm/xmonad-contrib I had
noticed that when portmaster asks to delete a distfile, when it asks about
xmonad-0.9.1 it was also asking to delete the xmonad-contrib-0.9.1 before
it had even upgraded xmonad-contrib. Is this a problem on portmasters
behalf or is this on ports structure side ?.
What do you or anyone else think about each port possibly keeping
obsolete-distfiles list one much like distinfo but a concatenated list of
previous distinfo's that had once been used allowing a ( make distclean )
or something routine to be built into the ports infrastructure to parse
that file in each port ?
