No don't use sudo. Only config that works is when everything is in the root's home dir, and git/pkgsrc is running as root.

That seems weird.

For me, a "chown -R myusername /usr/pkgsrc" is enough to be able to do all cvs and git operations.

On my system /usr/pkgsrc has owner 600 and group 125. /usr/pkgsrc/wip has owner root and group 125. Don't know why numbers as id's are used.

Meanwhile, I have committed your alpine update :)

Great, thanks!
