Package use survey

Jeremy C. Reed asks that anyone running pkgsrc install and run pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkgsurvey. This will send (generally anonymous) data to the pkgsrc project on which packages are being used. Repeating this monthly (as though a cron job) would be best.

If you’re still on the ports system, mail Jeremy the output of pkg_info. He also hinted that the data on the most popular packages could be used for putting together a DVD.

Darn quiet

I’ve seen nothing in the way of good news lately, on the mailing lists or about the web. So, in an effort to keep content appearing here, I’ll ask an idle question of you, the reader: Where do you go on the web for BSD news?
