#66687: cmake-bootstrap: Remove notes
 Reporter:  ryandesign  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal      |  Milestone:
Component:  ports       |    Version:
 Keywords:              |       Port:  cmake-bootstrap
 Installing the cmake-bootstrap port causes these notes to be printed:
   cmake-bootstrap has the following notes:
     To use this bootstrap version of cmake instead of the usual cmake
 port, add
     the following lines to the Portfile:

     depends_build-replace  path:bin/cmake:cmake port:cmake-bootstrap
     configure.cmd          ${prefix}/libexec/cmake-bootstrap/bin/cmake
 These notes are intended for port developers and seem likely to confuse
 users who just want to use ports that happen to have a dependency on
 cmake-bootstrap. Port notes in general are intended for giving information
 to users, not developers. It might be nice if MacPorts had a "developer
 mode" that developers could opt into to see such additional information
 (there could be a new `devnotes` command where such information could be
 left, and which would not be printed unless the user opted into developer
 mode) but no such mode exists at this time. Perhaps the information in
 this port's notes could be changed to comments in the Portfile, under the
 assumption that a developer might read the contents of dependency's
 Portfile when developing another port.
