Everyone should be heard.  who knows if the direction would be the same?

You won't hear from this old fart as every time I have had a question or 
input on direction All I got was grief.

The last time was about pkgng.  As someone that moved from LFS/building 
my own distribution to FreeBSD, and adding a package manager and tools 
for LFS.  I think I may have learned something in that process.  SO what 
did you folks do, Well I was just bitch slapped down.  So much for user 
input.  Hell pkgng can not even merge configurations file in /etc when 
is that going to be fixed.  Also the packaging of base is just a cluster 
fuck, there are no other words for that non sense.  When the base 
packaging was started it was told that by 11.0 it would be done and here 
it is at 11.1 and it still a cluster fuck.  Now you want to add flavors, 
  good grief you can not even finish the other projects that were 
started how will this flavors thing work out?

Anyway it looks like I will be moving to OpenBSD or just go back to 
rolling my own as I have more free time to pursue building systems that 
work for me.  FreeBSD just doesn't look like it will be a fit for me in 
the future.
