[20051208] pkglint improvements from the last four months
pkgsrc is the world's greatest source-based packaging system, supporting not only all the architectures that NetBSD runs on, but also a number of other operating systems. The team working on pkgsrc consists of more than fifty developers and is increasing steadily. Ensuring that packages maintain some standards for both interfaces and readability, the "pkglint" package can be used to check an existing package for problems.

Roland Illig has done a lot of work on pkglint in th past months, and he has sent an overview of his work outlining all the changes and how pkglint can assist developers of pkgsrc and pkgsrc-wip (etc. - are there other pkgsrc repositories?) to make sure their packages comply with pkgsrc's latest way of thinking. Roland's mail can be found here.
