Re: Bitrig support?

It appears that the last commit to their source gate was in 2017 (, and the website for the OS had its cert expire at ... Firefox says 5/9/2022 but I don't know if that's the 5th of Sept or the 9th of May.

Wikipedia claims that it was based on OpenBSD and that OpenBSD has merged most of their changes.

How different is Bitrig from OpenBSD?

Does it make sense to keep Bitrig support in pkgsrc?

I have the feeling that Bitrig *in general* is somehow less used --
i.e., "more dead" -- than even the other exotic OSes which we support.
It's not retro or fun, it's just... gone. I know that sounds kinda
harsh, but it is genuinely my impression of things.

But maybe someone more clued in to the Bitrig, uh, ecosystem has a
better idea of what to do about it (if anything at all).
