Before I begin, I will point out that I am David Howland, with a 'w',
not to be confused with the dev with a similar name.
I wanted to write this message to express some long-overdue appreciation
for Thomas 'wiz' and the dozens of other pkgsrc devs, and the hours of
work you put in for the users. I know that tracking updates, bugs, and
security vulns is a thankless job in spite of the importance it has for
everyone who depends on pkgsrc. I've been taking advantage of it for 10
years now, so I owe you my thanks. pkgsrc is an amazing system; have a
beer on me.
I also must express my delight that 'pkgin' has been created. Finally!
I use NetBSD in embedded applications on relatively lightweight
hardware, thus I prefer binary packages to compiling. I could never
understand why I couldn't have something like "aptitude install
python26". I don't know how I missed pkgin last year. You rock, iMil.
This needs to be added to the pkgsrc FAQ asap.
