All,

as of r327607 [1], Tcl/Tk ports can use the new USES framework, as
described in [2].

We (tcltk@) could use your help to transition from the deprecated
USE_TCL and USE_TK variables to the new framework.

For this, I have set up a wiki page at [3] to help coordinate the
efforts. There are currently 235 ports that need an update. If you
happen to be the maintainer of one of these ports, please consider
updating it and move the corresponding row from the "Ports to convert"
to the "Ports already converted" table in the Wiki, or just send in a
patch and ask tcltk@ do the job :)

Thank you very much for your help!

Pietro
for tcltk@
