pkgng is under active development with the stated aim of replacing the
current packaging system.  If you want to get involved, check out the
#pkgng channel on irc.freenode.net

It's still too early in the pkgng development cycle for a decision to
have been made about if and when it becomes the new standard packaging
system.  Given it is such a major infrastructure change the switch over
will have to be carefully managed and I'd expect there to be a lot of
activity over on freebsd-ports@ while it is all in beta.
