:What's pkgbox for?  (i.e should I be documenting it on the website or as a
:developer resource?)

    pkgbox serves two purposes.  First, it has one of the RAID-5 systems
    and archives a large number of open-source OS projects that people can
    reference.  This data is served-out to LEAF via NFS (/archive).

    Secondly, it has a lot of unbacked-up storage for doing large builds, 
    like pkgsrc builds or buildworld loops or whatever, for people who need
    to do long-running tests without having to worry about inconveniencing
    users on leaf.
