Port pv fails to perform a livecheck.

% port -v livecheck pv
Error: cannot check if pv was updated (regex didn't match)

Setting variables livecheck.regex, livecheck.type, and livecheck.url solves this error.

% port -d livecheck pv
[ snip output for brevity ]

DEBUG: Port (livecheck) version is 1.2.0

DEBUG: The regex is ">pv-([0-9.]+).tar.bz2<"
DEBUG: The regex matched ">pv-1.3.1.tar.bz2<", extracted "1.3.1"
pv seems to have been updated (port version: 1.2.0, new version: 1.3.1)

A difference report of the Portfile is attached.

It's an error to add to master_sites because that's not a directory from which the distfile can be downloaded; that's merely the homepage. And actually the default for livecheck.url is homepage, so we can simplify this by just not specifying livecheck.url. Committed in r94713 (maintainer timeout).

Thanks for your explanation about the correct usage of master_sites.
It seems that the latest versions of pv are only available at, so I have added this server in my request to update this port.
This time I updated master_sites with the correct location, please check ticket #35003.
