[issue:201] Re: TLContrib packages into MacPorts?

A while ago we had some ptex-related stuff in MacPorts which was
completely unmaintained for years and we removed it after a while
(there's still a package ptex-sfmacros, whatever that one does).

In order to get a package for MacPorts, either someone needs to
prepare a package and make a pull request, or someone needs to push
one of existing macports contributors. It might be easy enough to
create a package for one of us, I only need some URL with a tarball
that will ideally not change with time. (In principle git could also
work.) What would that URL be?

Is there any reason why these packages are not also distributed with
upstream TeX Live or at least with MacTeX? This is not an either-or
question, it could be distributed via both different channels.


PS: greetings from Tokyo :)
