Hey there All,
Is there an easy way to have poudriere auto-track the latest quarterly
ports build tree, without having to manually reset it to a specific
Poudriere knows how to portsnap the latest ports/head, but not the latest
Example: Currently, I can't build ports due to a failure in -HEAD for one
of my dependencies (xerces-c3-3.2.0) which causes several other ports to
fail as well.
Presumably, this port is more stable in the quarterly branch, which is
where me (and I think most people) would like to do most of our building
with -- for those of us that are only building custom ports to get new
options, not those of us that need the latest-greatest code.
However, that means that four times a year, one needs to manually do
surgery on our repos, not only to pull in the new quarterly branch, but
also to re-point pkg at the new build location.
It would work better if poudriere were either aware of the way the
quarterly branches are named, OR if there was a tag that always pointed a
the current quarterly, same as in pkg.
Is this possible?
