Re: make modular X11 the default on NetBSD
> If you want X, install the X sets.
A main problem could be that you don't know what you get with xserver
(or other sets). A user can't easily know what drivers, versions or
fixes are included.
Looking at xserver from past few years (i386):
These date stamps may not mean anything. In fact, maybe some un-related
X critical fixes warranted a new NetBSD release (so new tarballs for
xserver were made).
In addition, we don't have any tool to check if new sets are available,
retrieve them, extract, post-install checks and fixes and update
While the pkgsrc modular-xorg-server is not upgraded much, we do have
updates to some pkgsrc xf86-* drivers periodically. We can update the
x11 packages probably much easier and release quicker and more often
(four times a year for example).
I am willing to try using xsrc again though.
