#14061 closed defect (fixed)

"port contents" in a non-port directory causes 38 lines of error spew

Description

I think this error output can be shortened considerably:

$ cd
$ port contents
Can't map the URL 'file://.' to a port description file ("Could not find Portfile in /Users/rschmidt").
Please verify that the directory and portfile syntax are correct.
To use the current port, you must be in a port's directory.
(you might also see this message if a pseudo-port such as
outdated or installed expands to no ports).
Registry error:  @0_0 not registered as installed.
    while executing

    (procedure "receipt_flat::port_registered" line 16)

    # If there are remaining arguments, process those as a command

    (file "/opt/local/bin/port" line 2706)
$ 

Perhaps to fix this we need something like in #13284.

Is the attached patch an appropriate fix for this issue? I just copied some code from the action_variants procedure but it seems to work.

The patch I attached seems to have a bad side-effect. It causes "port contents" in an uncommitted port's dir to say "Error: Port foo not found". So a different solution is needed.

The large registry error part of this is gone now. Not sure if that's thanks to the fix for #16740 or something prior.
