sysutils/vm-bhyve-devel: add new port

Authored by driesm on Jul 9 2022, 9:36 AM.



Contrary to the sysutils/vm-bhyve port which tracks releases,
this port will track the head of the main branch. The main reason
is that upstream has become stale in creating releases. This way
we atleast get some improvements that have not yet been included
in a release. Last release dates from January 2020.

This has to be something different. Ideally, use git describe --tags to get the version. See the porters handbook for details.

Also, if there are some patches in the PRs that are worth bringing in, use PATCH_SITES and PATCHFILES. See the ports tree for examples.


I'd drop that. It's not relevant as it is a new port.


I'm not sure if that's necessary, but my guess is that if we want the conflict information to be included in the vm-bhyve package, we have to bump the revision here. So it seems correct.

Also, great idea. I've been thinking about doing it myself a couple of time!

  • Use decent versioning based on git describe --tags
  • Drop upgrade note as its a new port

Nice! Will definitely remember this one.


That was my reasoning too, it might work if its already in the vm-bhyve-devel port when trying to install it. To be sure I'll bump it.

Actually fix it (@FreeBSD)

I've not tested the patch, but it all seems reasonable to me.

Thanks for the review, will wait a few days for others to possibly shime in.

The most recent version of this looks good. Thank you!
