Re: Binary packages (again)

It seems that distribution of binary packages reduced to complete mess.
In recent month new users started asking on #netbsd where to get them
way too frequently. Cursory investigation reveals that we don't have
packages for NetBSD 5.1 (neither for i386 nor for amd64) or have only
obsolete packages, and other related problems.

Can we solve these issues somehow?

I understand that we might be tight on disk space and other resources,
but then lets' make our preferences more reasonable then! That is prefer
hosting 5.1.2 packages instead of 5.0.2 ones, if we have to choose
between the two. Or lets' drop building packages for 4.0 branch.
Having no binary packages for recent releases doesn't help using NetBSD at all!

We should build binary packages for 5.1.2 instead of 5.0.2.

I don't believe that users sticking to 5.0.x branch want to use binary packages
provided by TNF.
