Re: Sponsors.

Yes, I realize that each os has its own way of doing things.  If it
were in OpenBSD, it would become the new pkg tools just like you suggest
in FreeBSD, just a different directory: src/usr.sbin/pkg_install.  However
you slice it, you've got the 'current' os releases people are using that won't
necessarily work with the bsdports tree, and the future ones that will.  That
is the issue I meant to raise.  This either will have to be addressed, or
a minimum os revision be required for people to use the initial tree.  And
a headache of a tracking system to determine when 'new features' are introduced
into the bsdports tree and what os revisions they require and who can install
what ..
