New pkgsrc tool: pkg_dry

There’s a new tool being put together for pkgsrc installation and management, called pkg_dry.  There’s an initial version for download with instructions from its creator, Emile “iMil” Heitor.  It looks to duplicate the functionality of apt-get or yum, by handling binary-only remote package management.

Someone please test this on DragonFly, though not on a production machine…  If it does end up matching apt-get (the only thing I like in Debian) in terms of functionality, that will be fantastic!  I have wanted something like this for a while.
