It would help to have a list of broken items in portmaster.
I'm aware of the broken package support (can't create packages / can't  
use existing packages).

Flavour/subpackages support? It would be nice to have a description  
how it is supposed to work (how to identify the flavour in the package  
name / port, how to detect subpackages in the package name / port, how  
to create a subpackage from a port, how to create a specific flavour  
from the port).

What else?
