I really like the concept of having all of NetBSD's OS data/programs/etc.
be managed by the Packages system, and have been going through ways to
implement it as a thought experiment. Before I wade through my employer's
unpleasant process to let me "keep" ownership of my off-duty work, I
wanted to see who has already been working on this (real code if there
is any, ideas if not) to see where I can contribute. Is anyone working on
this already?
