Wonder whether first letter "j" is mandated to mirros pkgsrc ;-)

I do not see much difference between [1] and [2], but [3] looks slightly
different. It's "modified" to suit FreeBSD probably whereas the first two
are merely a mirror (but I could be wrong).

I have used [1] on Debian and besides check out process did not find any

But question may be authenticity. [Sorry, I appreciate the work of people
who have set these up. But in today's world we have to ask this question.]

Also, if the pkgsrc-wip experience is any indicator, most people seem to
be comfortable to switchover to git. [I for one, was one of the nay sayers
on the list when the change was proposed, but am quite comfortable with it

Probably time to debate whether pkgsrc should officially adopt git.

Alternatively endorse one or more of the above links as "official" :-).
