I completely agree.
The old "audit-packages" package should not be removed before a

the "netbsd-4" branch.
Are we all talking about the same thing here ?
I was under the impression that Greg's issue was that we are
depreciating security/audit-packages but not forcing an upgrade to an
pkg_install version that has the replacement functionality. But here
you're talking about an import into the NetBSD base system. What about
all the non-NetBSD pkgsrc users ?
All that aside, this issue is easy enough to resolve, we simply bump
PKGTOOLS_REQD when security/audit-packages is removed from CVS, then
everyone gets it. I don't have a major objection to this. As far as
I'm concerned the less ppl have to do, to get it up and running, the
But, to me, it does seem a bit counter user-friendly. In the past AFAIK
security/audit-packages was always optional, it was never forced on
anyone. But now, we are saying "because we're replacing it we're making
the upgrade of pkg_install mandatory". I prefer to leave it optional
just like the install of security/audit-packages always was. If people
want the functionality they know where it is.
Just remember what I said initially too, although the package will be
removed from CVS we will continue to update the pkg-vulnerabilities file
for it until *at least* 2008Q1 is cut.
