Sorry, I was copying the diff from a bug report I created long time ago and I copied it wrong. Now it should be fixed.

Docs approval granted. Not sure if Mat wants to comment as it's a bugs part.


When we know about Mat, please keep in mind that I have no commit bit, so someone else should commit the patch for me. Thanks.

What is this <span class="quote">?


"short description of the port" was just right, why complicate it with some obscure variable expansion.

Oh, do you mean the content of the COMMENT variable in the port?

If so, it would be preferrable to leave the "short description of the port" so that it is easy to understand, and maybe add a note saying something like:

To describe the port, the content of the <varname>COMMENT</varname> variable can be used.

There are a couple of tagging issues I'll fix before committing, yes.

I'll use your COMMENT example.
