HEADS UP - pkgsrc git repo changes
Our pkgsrc git repo has been having problems syncing from netbsd's cvs
repo so we are switching it over to pull from netbsd's git repo, which
is something new (or I was too daft to notice it if it's more than a
The fetch git URLs are the same. Avalon is now pulling from the netbsd
git repo. I would still prefer that our users pull from
git.dragonflybsd.org to avoid overloading netbsd's servers.
However, the branch names are different. We are currently pulling
the netbsd 'master' and 'pkgsrc-2010Q1' branches. The original branch
name used by our /usr/Makefile on the ISOs vas 'vendor'. The 'vendor'
branch is now frozen.
So people using the pkgsrc git repo need to switch to the 'master'
branch and adjust cron jobs and /usr/Makefile appropriately. Something
like this should do it:
git fetch origin
git branch master origin/master
git checkout master
And from that point on a 'git pull' will update it. Also edit your
/usr/Makefile and change all instances of 'vendor' to 'master'.
The initial fetch will be big, several hundred megabytes.
