Re: 2009Q1?

> Is 2009Q1 released or not?

The pkgsrc-2009Q1 branch was created in early April, if I recall
correctly.  I don't know if that constitutes what you call a
"release" though.

Some digging reveals that it appears that the announcement was
actually not sent out (yet)...  Hopefully that will be corrected

However, the creation of the pkgsrc branches are done on a
schedule; you should expect a new branch about every 3 months.

There are binary packages for the following set of architectures
and NetBSD OS-versions for the 2009Q1 branch (from

5.1G    amd64/3.1_2009Q1
8.8G    amd64/4.0_2009Q1
9.2G    amd64/5.0_2009Q1
7.1G    i386/3.1_2009Q1
9.3G    i386/4.0_2009Q1
9.4G    i386/5.0_2009Q1
4.3G    powerpc/3.1_2009Q1
7.0G    powerpc/4.0_2009Q1
6.9G    powerpc/5.0_2009Q1

I'd say it is "actually released" and it is now being maintained,
i.e. additional fixes are being applied to the branch until the
pkgsrc-2009Q2 branch is created, which is supposed to happen
sometime near mid-year.
