Well, here's my part of constructive criticism :) This looks much better,
than the last pkg you did, but there are still some minor enhancements you
should consider :)
* you are porting obslolete release :) Current twisted is 1.2.0, see
* USE_BUILDLINK2 could be either changed to USE_BUILDLINK3 or (perhaps)
* why do you PLIST_SUBST PYLIB?
* docs, as you can see in wip/py-twisted-docs, go much better without being
installed together with python package. Why? First, you must remember
about CONFLICTS, that it could create (eg. each package for each Python
version wants share/doc/twisted/). Okay, you did remember about this. But
then, installing docs to separate directories, named with PYPKGPREFIX is
also not a good idea - you install the same files witch each package,
which is no sense. Separate doc package, which does not depend on Python,
Thanks and good luck with new packages! Perhaps you could consider getting a
pkgsrc-wip commit bit. Also, as port2pkg doesn't always work too good (IMO),
have a look at url2pkg, for example.
