===============================================================================
LIBERTYBSD-SCRIPTS For deblobbing OpenBSD
===============================================================================

Scripts used to deblob and rebrand OpenBSD source-code, made for the
LibertyBSD project. You can get OBSD sources from your local mirror
at https://www.openbsd.org/ftp.html, as the 'src', 'xenocara', or 'sys'
tarballs. CVS can be used, as well.


----------------------------------------
SCRIPTS
----------------------------------------
There're five scripts here, so here's what they do:

src_deblob.sh Deblobs main OBSD source of NF FW, references, etc
man_deblob.sh Gets rid of pages with non-free (NF) references
sys_deblob.sh Deletes NF firmware and references thereof from kernel

src_rebrand.sh Basic system rebranding, etc
sys_rebrand.sh System/boot rebranding
man_rebrand.sh Rebrand man-pages, and add some of our new ones
xenocara_rebrand.sh
Rebrands X sources-- not much to this one

ports_deblob.sh
Deblob ports tree of all NF listings
ports_rebrand.sh
Rebrand ports in ports-tree, etc



----------------------------------------
USAGE
----------------------------------------
Usage of these scripts is pretty simple-- to make freshly deblobbed OBSD
sources, just run them each with the argument being the directory of the
corresponding source-code, like so:

sh src_deblob.sh /usr/src
sh man_deblob.sh /usr/src
sh sys_deblob.sh /usr/src/sys
sh xenocara_rebrand.sh /usr/xenocara
sh ports_deblob.sh /usr/ports

If you want liberated OpenBSD sources, but without the LibertyBSD rebranding,
just skip the *_rebrand.sh scripts and everything should go fine.



----------------------------------------
NOTES
----------------------------------------
All of the scripts make use of "./libdeblob.sh", and all file-editing/etc
operations are abstracted to its functions.

This is because instead of actually applying changes directly to OBSD
sources, the deblob scripts create a set of patches for them, and *then*
apply them.

You might want to perform multiple operations on a given file, (I.E.,
substitute text, then remove a line, etc.). After every operation, a new
(modified) version of the file is created in the /tmp/ directory, along with
a patch. So if you want to do multiple operations, you'll need to decide
whether or not to use the original source-code, or a modified version from
/tmp/...

This has been abstracted away with the "ifile" and "ofile" functions.
"ifile" outputs to stdout the contents of the file-- be it the patch-file, the
original, whatever is appropriate. "ofile" writes to the patch-file what is
piped to it, and handles the bullocks.

Hence why "ifile | operation | ofile" is so common in libdeblob.sh

Each script uses a very clearly-named /tmp/ directory...
/tmp/script-name/


While it is a *tad* bit weird do all of this indirect work on the sources, it
has a few advantages I'd like to stick with:
* Abstraction.
Operations are all very general and unspecific; you don't need
to manually muck with `sed` for every individual patch.
* Easy debugging.
If there's a problem, you can stop the script before it patches
original sources, and look at the /tmp/ data. Compare the
.orig with the .patch with the modified, etc. Very useful.
* Patch generation.
With patches being integral to the entire process, it makes all
changes made to OBSD source code very transparent. Anyone could
take a look at a tarball of the patches and understand *exactly*
what changed.
There're probably some other obscure use-cases for these
patches, anyway. And if it's easy to support a weird
hypothetical use-case, why not?

... in order of importance.
