-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
The above two listed ports have a conflict with the installed binary
'/usr/local/bin/timelimit' but do not list each-other as a conflict and
should be adjusted to reflect the conflict with one-another.
$ pkg_info -qW /usr/local/bin/timelimit
pkg_info: both netpipes-4.2 and timelimit-1.7 claim to have installed
This could also be said for its manual pages as well.
After removing the timelimit-1.7 package and then upgrading netpipes-4.2
===>>> Creating a backup package for old version netpipes-4.2
tar: man/man1/timelimit.1.gz: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: bin/timelimit: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
pkg_create: make_dist: tar command failed with code 256
===>>> Package creation failed for netpipes-4.2!
Though the functionality provided by both timelimit commands are
fundamentally the same, timelimit-1.7 offers quite a bit more control
over the one that ships with netpipes-4.2 without the need to install
files like 'faucet' that may act as a network server. Would it be
possible to install the netpipes version of timelimit binary as
timelimit-4.2 instead ? or maybe another name so these can coexist ?
As well, timelimit-1.7 would be a great candidate for import into world
since it is your e-std 2 clause BSD license and a 3 file compile. ;) And
if noone else wants to maintain it in tree then ill volunteer.
