We have a new amazing VL version online, and I was about to package a couple of applications, but I face a dilemma: to port or not to port.

Apps I'm going to package have no deps to solve, so port would be enough, but they don't change versions very often, so a tlz will not get outdated for long time.

What do you recommend?

Feel free to move this post to a better section...

either way you do it you will end up with a tlz. i would vote to port them. That way when the versions do change you can use the same script to build the newer versions.

Yeah, I meant what's the better way for distributing a package, not just for myself. 
I'll try porting anyway. I'm having some difficulties linking the Pkgfile with slack-desc though.

I thought we modded the ports script to pick up a slack-desc automagickly if it was in the same dir as the pkgfile?

exeterdad is correct. Just put it in the same directory

Done!

Now I'm trying to package an app that has some dependencies.  As cruxports4slack doesn't check dependencies, I will package it to be used in gslapt, but the question is:

Is dependency checking in the TODO list, or ports won't check deps in the future?
