I just committed 'pkgmanager' to pkgsrc-wip (wip/pkgmanager). It
is an initial version of a package manager for pkgsrc. The main
attraction is the capability to perform upgrades incrementally.
In other words, if packages B depends on package A and A is upgraded,
package B is not removed. Instead, package A is upgraded and then
package B is re-built with the new dependency.
Anybody interested is encouraged to give it a shot; feedback is very
welcome. Especially if bugs/issues are discovered.
