} My understanding is that pkglint is typically run without an

     It will do that if you use the '-i' option as it should:

     -i|--import         Check if a package is ready to be imported into
                         pkgsrc.  This is especially useful for packages from
                         the pkgsrc-wip project.

} 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'?

     If it does, it will like need to run 'make clean' afterwards.
Although it would be better if it didn't do this to avoid any

} I'm not sure I care one way or the other, but it seems that there

     It could be based on certain options.  But, it could also be
defined as "out of scope".
