main pkg(8)/synth development complete, but ...
As of right now, and to the best of my knowledge, the pkg(8)-driven
pkgsrc work is complete. The synth program
(https://github.com/jrmarino/synth) has been ported to support both
pkgsrc and NetBSD (with significant forward work for Linux and SunOS
What needs to be done is:
A full bulk build on NetBSD 7 and/or NetBSD-current
That serves two purposes:
1) identify any lacking pkg(8) support that the build results or build
logs can expose
2) create a full repository that could be hosted so that people could
easily use pkg(8) as it was meant to be (for those unfamiliar with
FreeBSD or DragonFly). 
My problem is that I lack a suitable builder server with NetBSD on it.
I can walk somebody through the setup if they would be willing to donate
the use of suitable machine. It would have to publish the web report so
I could view it and build logs as the bulk run is progressing.
I've gotten about as far as I can get without a real build machine.
Synth is definitely usable for anybody that wants to evaluate it.
 I would provide a small shell shell to "bootstrap" pkg(8) by
downloading the latest binary package and manually extracting it so that
pkgsrc itself wouldn't be needed to leverage binary packages.
