#56030: qca: debug variant problems
 Reporter:  ryandesign  |      Owner:  RJVB
     Type:  defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal      |  Milestone:
Component:  ports       |    Version:
 Keywords:              |       Port:  qca
 The qca port's +debug variant includes the obsolete portgroup. If your
 intention was to indicate that the variant is obsolete, that's not what
 the obsolete portgroup does. It indicates that a ''port'' is obsolete.
 Please remove the portgroup from the variant (unless the entire qca port
 is obsolete...).

 The variant also instructs the user to "use `configure.optflags="-g"`".
 Users should not be instructed to override portfile variables at the
 command line. This facility is meant to be used by developers debugging a
 portfile problem, not by users.
