Need git-bzr so that I can update an instance of Bugzilla using git.

This is a request to package the kfish branch of git-bzr, which seems the best-maintained.

Depends on Ticket #24762 being packaged (bzr-fastimport).

Attached a Portfile that lets you package a given commitish from the kfish git-bzr project. Instructions on how to update the Portfile are included as a comment.

BTW, I didn't think it was necessary to use "kfish" as a variant for the package (even though there are other branches of git-bzr) since I'm not sure there's any value in packaging any of the other branches.

Uploaded a new Portfile that changed depends_lib-append to depends_run-append since there are no build-time dependencies.

Usually I prefer stable release from upstream, but in this case it's not quite clear who the upstream maintainer is. Probably we should add this as git-bzr-devel to indicate that it is actually a snapshot.

In the past there have been problem with generated tarballs, as the checksum would change for each download as tar includes the atime. Probably github caches these, but just to be safe I would switch to the zip file download.

Also github seems to ignore everything after the commitish, so we can simplify this a little bit. I also rewrote the destroot phase to include some docs.

Status: assignedclosed

After more than two years, there are still no (stable) releases from upstream available - there is not even a designated upstream, just multiple repositories on github. I am no longer waiting for a release. If someone else is interested in creating a git-bzr-devel port tracking the git repository, feel free to reopen and assign to someone else.
