pkg_summary(5) and license restrictions
According to pkg_info(1)
-X Print summary information for each package. The summary
format is described in pkg_summary(5).
ITS _PRIMARY USE IS TO CONTAIN ALL INFORMATION ABOUT THE
CONTENTS OF A (REMOTE) BINARY PACKAGE REPOSITORY NEEDED BY
PACKAGE MANAGING SOFTWARE.
Unfortunately a few important fields are absent in pkg_summary(5):
All they are important to make a decision whether to put binaries to
ftp:// of cdrom or not.
What do think about inclusion of these two variable values to
pkg_summary(5)? In this case this decision can be easily made based
on pkg_summary(5) (generated by bulk builds, for example)
without needs to get this info especially like the following
pkg_grep_summary NO_BIN_ON_FTP '$2 != ""'
pkg_grep_summary NO_BIN_ON_CDROM '$2 != ""'
The same question for sources - NO_SRC_ON_CDROM, NO_SRC_ON_FTP.
Is it possible to add/remove some variables to/from pkg_summary
generated by 'pkg_info -X'?
I now about -Q and -B but they require a postprocessing script.
Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
