Joerg, this is YOUR future. I already explained you my needs several
times. I don't work with future versions of pkg_add. I work RIGHT NOW
with pkg_add that exists NOW and I manage pkg_summary files in a way I
need. Your pbulk just doesn't allow me to do what I want - managing
multiple binary repositories (like Debian's apt does). The way pbulk
builds summary file is the extra undeed mega-intellect. I don't need
it. My own tool that I use NOW is better than your FUTURE pkg_add just
because it exists NOW. Do you still don't see needs for things I ask
Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
