Satoshi San, can you give us a list of features that FreeBSD has that
should be incorporated into this project?

Todd, Chris, will you answer these questions please?

Hubert, will you maintain this list?  I will post it to the web page when
it is ready.

These sound like we need to have our CVS server setup.  I'll see if I can
hurry things up...

Would it be possible for each group to just maintain a CVS checkout of our
CVS tree?  The cvs checkout could update only the directories that
completed a successful build.  Then at release time they could cvs tag
that checkout and use it to build packages.  I want to avoid branching
this project.

Is that senario possible, or am I dreaming?

When we get this project ready to roll out, I will pay someone to write a
series of articles documenting how to use the project.  Both for users
compiling packages and for developers creating packages.
