In theory, 9.0_RELEASE and 9.0_STABLE have the same ABI and thus
packages from one may be used on the other.  So far, we are not aware of
any violations of that same-ABI rule.

There are 9.0_STABLE 2020Q2 packages available for amd64 at:

but TNF build systems do not, so far, create and distribute builds of
pkgsrc head.

Other than thinking this is a nice contribution, something I agree with,
I don't follow this paragraph.  Bulk builds are for a particular OS, OS
version, pkgsrc version, and thus if you want packages for multiple
tuples you need multiple setups.

Especially if you want only a limited set of packages, running pbulk
yourself should be quite doable.
