I have created a branch of your "pkgsrcgfe" on GitHub (free git hosting
service). I think others are interested, so it is better to use a public
repository, instead of attachments to a newsgroup, because that way, others
can see development in real-time and start contributing. There is a common
advice to open-source developers which says:
"Release early, release often".
I did not make any changes yet, but I have been planning on writing a
textual frontend to pkgsrc (like Aptitude in Debian), so that one can make
multiple changes and then execute them at once, instead of waiting for the
previous command to finish before you can install something else. And, I
think it makes sense maybe to have one codebase for these and have options
to build either the text or the graphical interface. Here's the URL:
