Absolutely. In reading this I realize that my original post may have taken
on a tone that was not my intent. I never meant to slam pkgsrc or any of
the people whose hard work, as you correctly point out, is behind it.
If it seemes as if I were, I apologize for my poor choice of phrasing.
I only intended to highlight what I consider to be one of the biggest
"issues" with pkgsrc at this time. Since a next-gen packaging solution,
if I am not misstaken, is one of the goals of DragonFly, and because the
question about pkgsrc was specifically brought up, I thought I would
comment on the issue.
