New pkgsrc mailing list

There’s a new mailing list – – specifically for people using pkgsrc packages. is now for packagers. To subscribe, send ‘subscribe pkgsrc-users’ to

Pkgsrc questions should generally go to this new list, though DragonFly-specific questions should be asked on first. (Unless, of course, the package doesn’t build yet on DragonFly.)

Interestingly, the number of actual broken pkgsrc packages is down to only 10% of the entire collection. Much credit is due to Joerg Sonnenberger, Jeremy C. Reed, and others, for knocking this quantity down.
