With pkgsrc contributor hat on only, I'm mixed. on the minus side: I end up building lots of stuff as build deps, use bin-install as DEPENDS_TARGET and pkgin ar afterwards. python doesn't seem super big compared to thunderbird. There are a bunch of new patches and that will perhaps make an update harder. on the plus: I see your point, and it really doesn't seem to have any real downsides. With branch manager hat on, I don't see this as a change that is out of line per /quarterly. Just the usual obligation for any change at all to have no unresolved breakage by freeze stat, and this doesn't worry me.
