In my local directories , I am appending license name to directory names ,
for example ,

.../D_BSD_see_Parts   <---------- This means it contains many different
licensed files although primary license is BSD . Such directories require
special care if ever any part is used from them .

I think , it is possible to adopt such definition conventions for the ports

Thank you very much .
