p.s. I have over 2600 pkgsrc packages packaged for DragonFly.
Are there any plans for a repository to download from? What with the
recent ABI changes, these packages may not work on all 1.3 systems, so we
may not be able to do something like that until 1.4 is out.
No plans yet. These are all built as non-root: so /home/reed/pkg is
hard-coded in many, many places.
Later, I may use a jail and run as root.

That's wonderful news! I assume you mean binary packages?
Are you feeding the patches to pkgsrc as you go?
I have committed some fixes. And I have several more to commit as I test.
Also, in many cases I ask the maintainer for an okay before I commit to
I'm asking because I'm now trying to patch xfce4-systemload-plugin, and
I won't waste my time if you've already done it.
I have not looked at.
Whenever you make a fix, (in addition to pkgsrc) please send it directly
to the upstream developer(s) for the software (using their developer
mailing lists or bug reporting system). It is important that the original
software properly supports the operating system and this makes it easier
for pkgsrc and other package maintainers (and users who build from source)
in the long run. Thanks!
