The wm/dwm package in pkgsrc-current currently holds dwm version 5.8.2,
while the current upstream release is 5.9. Updating is desired.
While here, update the `DESCR' file; the patch below makes it reflect (most of)
today's description as can be found on <http://dwm.suckless.org/>.
The exact actual upstream changes, e.g. to (partly) include in the pkgsrc CVS
commit message, are currently unknown to me; it should be able though to
extract them from <http://hg.suckless.org/dwm/> (or
<http://hg.suckless.org/dwm/log/dd74622a4785>, as linked to on there,
specifically). It's possible my previous PR on updating wm/dwm, pkg/44987,
gave misleading URLs to exact changelogs of version 5.8, 5.8.1 and 5.8.2;
this might or might not have lead to (partly) incorrect pkgsrc commit messages
(being those of r1.11 of wm/dwm/Makefile, r1.11 of wm/dwm/distinfo, and
r1.2 of wm/dwm/options.mk.) Again: I'm unsure.
When the package is updated, the relevant line from doc/TODO can be
deleted; this is also done by the patch below. Additionally,
doc/CHANGES-2011 should obviously be updated accordingly as well.
With an up-to-date checkout of pkgsrc-current, issue
"cd /usr/pkgsrc/wm/dwm; make package-name"; compare with the current
content of <http://dwm.suckless.org/>.
Apply proposed patches, generated with
"cd /usr/pkgsrc/; cvs diff -u wm/dwm doc/TODO",
which were created, tested, and found to work correctly on NetBSD/i386:
