Making a resume/summary of the thread; more hardware, time and people
are needed to maintain a package system up-to-date. I have a free
server (amd64 freebsd8.2p6), if i built all packages with their
standard options, that's without make config, Can i upload them to
the official package ftp? Should i make my own un-official ftp
package server to allow others download them?
Perhaps it's not clear, this answer has ironic mode off, joking mode
off and i want to collaborate making the standard packages.
When i needed the package system? When i don't want a downtime if a
server must be reinstalled. Compiling everything takes too much time
for non critical ports (bash, gcc4.6, ...), even at first i pkg_add
important apps, when everything is working, i update them by ports.
