Is is, on the wiki page.

I've always considered the ability to run pkgdb mutable targets like
install and update at the top or category levels a bug. Nobody would
ever want to install the entire pkgsrc and besides it could never work
because of conflicting packages.
Maybe those targets could direct the user at documentation instead.

Kind regards,
