I have to recognize that we lack documentation for pkgng, I'll write a
wiki page on this soon.
so to get information:
1/ the url of the project: on the
bottom of the homepage it is written how to integrate with the actual
2/ the chan for the development: #pkgng on freenode
3/ to convert an existing base to pkgng: on the source tree there is a
ports/pkg2ng just execute it.
4/ be aware that it kills kitten and puppies
5/ this is alpha code, all the help is welcome, code, documentation,
review, ideas.
