  1. Kind of off-topic, but is there gonna be a (for example) 1.3.x compat layer for 1.2.x so that there can be one set of binary packages?

  2. Oh, also, can’t the following still be done for the DragonFly version of pkg_add? (from the FreeBSD “pkg_add” man page):

    The environment variable PACKAGEROOT specifies an alternate location for pkg_add to fetch from. The fetch URL is built using this environment variable and the automatic directory logic that pkg_add uses when the -r option is invoked. An example setting would be “ftp://ftp3.FreeBSD.org”.

    The environment variable PACKAGESITE specifies an alternate location for pkg_add to fetch from. This variable subverts the automatic directory logic that pkg_add uses when the -r option is invoked. Thus it should be a complete URL to the remote package file(s).”

  3. Yeah, I just tried the following and it works on 1.2.x (tcsh):

    setenv PACKAGEROOT “http://www.fireflybsd.org/”
