Hi all, 

I'm little lost since FreeBSD introduce pkgng.

Should I use pkgng or the ports (like I did before ?)

My server is manage through puppet, so I would like to use pkg for some
« basic » packages (like bash, vim etc..) but want ports system for
important thing (like postgresql-server) because I can tune the option. 

But in that way how I manage to maintaint up2date ALL packages ?
