Hi ports@
Tip to avoid 12.3-STABLE taking ages for enormous
	cd /usr/ports/www/chromium ; make
after failing to find a package
	pkg install chromium
	pkg search chromium
vi -c/url: /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf 
Caution: A subsequent `pkg upgrade` will cause lots of up & downgrades.

My 13.0-RELEASE-p11 /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf was already on quarterly
To see how it's installed:
	cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/pkg; vi -c/PKGCONFBRANCH Makefile

Presumably package build engines fail to supply the probably fast
changing & certainly enormous chromium to some repositories.  Maybe
there might be other monstrous packages fetchable by this method.
