Seems to me that this is not a once-only job that can be finished, but a
process that is going to require a team of people who are willing to spend
time every day keeping up with the constant stream of updates from FBSD.
My real question is this: since maintaining a ports collection is not
a primary goal for DragonFly (but still important) why force such an
event at all? It's going to be drain on everyone's time for a gain
which is still not very clear to me.
Why not just pretend to be FreeBSD until such time as a proper ports
system can be created and maintained for DragonFly?
