As I probably won't ever know enough from experience, if one wants a
local lan
build tool is there any flowchart with use cases

1... foo foo bar use case >> tinderbox
2... foo foo bar use case >> build jail
3... foo foo bar use case >> bhyve
4... foo foo bar use case >> poudriere
5... foo foo bar use case >> csbd OR qjail OR ezjail OR man jail OR
bastille script
6... foo foo bar use case >> server on lan serving packages

And where they may overlap, which takes the least setup time, which
takes the
least maintenance time, which can be most easily migrated version >
version ...

Not to mention the wiki, but if that information was "[some term ] use
cases" like
virtualization or multi-machine or... on the page
prominently, it may
result in a larger userbase... more coders onboard.

Recognizing that a lot of this is emerging technology.  Apologies.  I've
a slight
interest in reading any such document, having read an hour or so
yesterday not
a few htm explaining jails, (10 pages of threads linked from
a search 'ezjail' in the forums, for example) to know that acquiring the
expertise of
a quickstart group of terms to focus on in any particular scenario is
something I don't
easily expect to acquire.

On the other hand, to include the wiki... vs links from it.
