Re: pkglint and R packages
To return to the nature of canonical R packages, I think we are suggesting that they look like the following:
R_PKGNAME= < R package name, i.e., no preceding R- >
R_PKGVER= < R package version, i.e., often with hyphens (-), etc. that are translated to periods (.) >
CATEGORIES= < an appropriate set of categories > # XXX - directory should be first if >1; R is (should be?) added by Makefile.extension and should not be here
MAINTAINER= pkgsrc-users%NetBSD.org@localhost # XXX - this can be used as the default, but something (or OWNER) must be defined in each package
COMMENT= < an appropriate comment > # XXX - R2pkg takes these from the R DESCRIPTION file, which makes updates easy
LICENSE= < an appropriate license filename > # XXX - R2pkg takes this from the R DESCRIPTION file, but some have odd LICENSE files
# DEPENDS+= ... as necessary
USE_LANGUAGES= # none # XXX - should this be the default in Makefile.extension and omitted unless needed?
# other stuff for more complicated R packages
# ... any necessary buildlink3.mk files
Does this make sense? Comments?
