FreeBSD Community,


I'm pleased to announce a CFT for builds of FreeBSD 12-stable and 13-current
using "TrueOS-inspired" packaged base. These are stock FreeBSD images which
will allow users to perform all updating via the 'pkg' command directly.
Rather than trying to answer all questions in this announcement, we've
created a FAQ page with more details. Please refer to this page, and let us
know if you have additional questions that we can include on that page going


Additionally, I will be hosting a Package Base working group at BSDCan 2019,
and welcome user and developer attendance to discuss this and other ongoing
package work:
