The DragonFly project maintains a copy of the netbsd pkgsrc repo for DragonFly 
users, so we can point them at our copy and not overload the netbsd servers.  
We originally used the netbsd cvs repo on a 6 hour cron job but switched to the 
netbsd git repo a few months ago.

p.s. the netbsd pkgsrc git repo was really very nice, it takes virtually no 
network or cpu resources on either the client or server to keep things in sync 
so we could fetch more often and keep things more up-to-date.

However, it recently stopped working.  Our git fetch now complains about a 
missing file (see below).  It appears that a simple 'git update-server-info' 
command run on the server in that repo will fix the problem (assuming you guys 
are still keeping your git pkgsrc mirror operational).

Please advise if not and I will switch back to using netbsd's cvs pkgsrc repo 
on a 6-hour schedule.

git clone
Initialized empty Git repository in /build/tt/pkgsrc/.git/
not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?
It is believed that running 'git update-server-info' in your pkgsrc git repo 
will fix the problem, assuming you are still keeping your repo in sync with 
your cvs master.
