I would like to recommend some settings for local builds in poudriere.conf

These are very useful if you want a working repository for your machines 
every time you run "pkg install" or "pkg upgrade". Nothing is more 
frustrating than trying to build an update in Poudriere and it fails, 
leaving you with a broken repository. That's why we use atomic yes and 
don't commit on failure.
It changes slightly what Mark Millard described - Poudriere does not 
remove packages from your repository before building. It does it on a 
separate copy of the repository that is only used for the bulk build, 
and if it fails, your real repository remains untouched.

If you want to keep older repositories, you can set the following 
variables (we keep 3)


Kind regards
