Recently I sent big patch in this mailing list with Subject
"Re: biiiig patch for wip packages".
It will be better if someone with CVS
write permissions will review it and commit it. This will fix
most (all?) affected packages at once. Then, PLIST files should be fixed the
same way, once for the whole list of packages. The rest of buggy files
(patch/*, files/* and others) may be fixed manually by package maintainers.

Sure. And about PKGINFODIR too.
