It probably would be useful to have some directories for "stable" and
"current" on the FTP server for installing packages from.
I don't know what the best layout would be; maybe:
ftp:// .... /pub/NetBSD/packages/1.6.2-stable/i386/All
1.6.2 and 1.6.2-stable can be a symlink to 1.6.2-2003Q4.
ftp:// .... /pub/NetBSD/packages/1.6.2-current/i386/All
-current would be the packages built from pkgsrc HEAD.
But maybe that would be confusing, because it would be good top have
-current NetBSD with -current pkgsrc too, like:
ftp:// .... /pub/NetBSD/packages/current-current/i386/All
(but that is strange)
Any thoughts on this?
