4 years of pkg(8)

A end less journey

A summary of four years working on pkg:

  • why a new packages manager;
  • what happened in the different versions;
  • mistakes made;
  • lesson learned
  • What is cooking for the future:
    • within pkg(8) itself;
    • packaging the FreeBSD base system;
    • improvement in the ports tree.
