It was pretty much magic, but I pulled apart some existing packages and took a guess at most of it.


On the plus side this is a really simple package, nothing complicated. Install a couple of files and a user.

Thanks for your two great ideas. I hadn't understood the trick to adding a new ports category, so that makes it much easier if I want to give up my json MANIFEST hack.

Please cc me directly, since I'm not on this list.

Thanks again for your help!
