Re: FETCH_USING= wget
The documentation you are reading is applies to pkgsrc-2009Q2 and
-current. You should strongly consider switching to a supported branch.
I hope you still have some patience left for me being a newbie. :-)
According to documentation there is only two branches: stable and
-current. (Here is were I read:
http://www.netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/getting.html#uptodate-cvs). And using
"cvs update -dP" should update the stable branch to the current release
How come that I am sitting on an outdated release of it and "cvs update"
does not change that to something current?
After digging through documentation I ran "cvs update -rpkgsrc-2009Q
-dp" and that seems to have switched everything to the current release
(now fetch.mk is 1.42). Do I have to do that at every beginning of a new
quarter? Or is there some setting to automate this?
By the way, pkgsrc still uses ftp to fetch source archives although
/etc/mk.conf contains "FETCH_USING=wget" (only that, copied and pasted):

What can I do to find out why?
