Near-term dports work

Rimvydas Jasinskas posted an extended description of what’s happening with dports.  There’s a significant xorg reformatting coming in ports, which is going to be absorbed into dports, but it may take some time.  There’s also an odd loss of commit rights for John Marino, who commits (frequently!) to both DragonFly and FreeBSD.  (His followup)  This all translates to some upcoming transition time for dports to accommodate these changes.

Note that if you are using dports binaries, especially on DragonFly 4.6 release, this won’t really affect you; the way dports is set up, binary sets always work.  It is interesting to hear about future work, in any case.

A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.

Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.

This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy.  There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.

There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
