Wahou, Thanks for that great feedback :)
Finally something interesting on that list...
Nice to hear and really happy that pkgng while still be highly experimental
works so good on your case.
Now that you have become our larger tester, feedback are really welcome:
- bug reports,
- features resquest,
- documentation :D
I may recommand you to well test your upgrades before deploying them. Upgrade
process has to be refactor because it works but have some rough edges. I use
exclusively pkgng on my boxes (only 4 sorry :)) for weeks now without major
problem that can't be fixed.
We are also interested in the procedures, I mean the way you build the packages
and the way you deploy them, I may have some things to point you to that can
help you managing your servers using pkgng :)
