Pkgin is a great tool! I've begun using it recently and so far it seems feature
full, smooth and efficient.
This is a feature request to identify the upstream src directly with pkgin.
This would be useful to identify best package to use when there are multiple
options, it is not always clear which represents the newest release.
For example, to install the newest version of firefox
pkgin search firefox
firefox36-l10n-3.6.28 Language packs for www/firefox36
firefox36-3.6.28nb4 Web browser with support for extensions
firefox10-l10n-10.0.6 Language packs for www/firefox
firefox10-10.0.7nb3 Web browser with support for extensions
firefox-l10n-15.0.1 Language packs for www/firefox
firefox-15.0.1nb2 Web browser with support for extensions
but how would one determine if firefox36 or firefox represents the most current
upstream package available?
Since I'm using pkgin, I don't have the pkgsrc cvs tree to grep Makefiles from.
If there is a way to determine url for upstream sources with pkgin, I don't see
it. Not sure the best way to integrate with existing command line, but I feel
this would be a valuable option.
I could imaging other useful data in the Makefiles, perhaps a pkgin option to
dump the specified package's Makefile would work?
