"cask" ports just keep on rolling in...

With no plan, we’ll just keep getting more and more of these.

<https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/9936 <https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/9936>>

This kind of port just repackages the DMG into many tgz archives.

It’s wasteful. People want them.

What we should have instead of this is some kinda tech that

1. downloads the DMG
2. installs the app
3. records some way of uninstalling everything

What we have instead is a repackaging of the DMG into many, identical, system-specific archive bundles.
