Dear FreeBSD Community,

Sorry if the tone is perceived as a rant. It is not my intention and I would
actually like to be constructive. Could we please start using the minor version
numbers in package repositories? This would be conducive to having stable
reproducible jail builds. I know that the canonical answer to this is
"build/copy your own packages tree" but, in the age when storage is so
extremely cheap, do we really need to put everyone through this torture? Thank
you in advance for your consideration. Please help me to understand what would
be necessary to make this happen.

Kind regards,
