I acquired two SAS Seagate ST3300656SS disks, each 300 marketing-GB, for
70 dollars each. I plan to put them together in one ZFS pool, install
CURRENT on it and run poudriere to build the packages I need.

It will be the 1st time I install ZFS and will just follow our Wiki for
Or are there any other hints to tweak it for poudriere?

I will mount it in the cellar and use power-LAN to connect it with my
LAN in my flat. The box does not need much connection, only to fetch
distfiles and a bit SSH to manage poudriere on it.

Thanks for any further comments.
