Re: Reducing the number of patches in pkgsrc

What is this "status" file? Does it mention the "feedback status" of each patch? Why don't we put this information in the patch itself?

Because in that case, every status change involves regenerating the checksum of the patch, which I don't really like. For example, pbulk rebuilds a package whenever a CVS Id of a file in PKGPATH has changed. It would be easy to list patches/status as an exception. Listing the patches themselves would not be good. :)
