I've been looking at binary bootstrap packages on www.pkgsrc.org for
operating systems and I noticed that some of them differ from
example some contain an mk.conf some do not.
Is there an authoritative list of files and directories that should
exist in the
bootstrap tarballs? Including ownership and permissions? perhaps
mtree.specfile that can be used with pax to generate the bootstrap
If there isn't one perhaps there should be one?
