My understanding is that pkglint is typically run without an extracted distfile and that it is only checking the package files themselves.  At some point, I think it even complained about an existing work directory.  Is that not the case?

If it is, these ideas seem like major changes, because they would require an extracted distfile.  What happens if it is not already extracted; will it run 'make extract'?

I'm not sure I care one way or the other, but it seems that there should be an explicit understanding regarding whether pkglint expects or does not expect an extracted distfile.  Then again, maybe I am the only one uncertain about this.
