Yes, that is pretty clear.

You keep repeating this, without proof. This is what I do not see, and
you so conveniently stripped that part out of your reply. portmaster
does not break for me when there is a missing newline at the end of
distinfo. It updates the port happily. This is what i meant with being
more specific, how can the failure be reproduced?

It seems most of this will be moot soon anyway, so maybe we should just
let this case rest.

However someone should perhaps fix all the files that have been added
without newline at the end of the file.
