Yes, and the implementation of that plan is advancing well.  Hardware is
up and running, and the build system is pretty much ready to go.  Most
of the action at the moment is about reducing the number of ports that
fail to build with clang, plus coping with a number of new shared
libraries which will be in the 10.x base system but that come from the
ports for 9.x or older.

If you want to try it out:

% cat /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/pkg-test.conf
  URL: http://pkg-test.freebsd.org/pkg-test-${ABI}/latest

It's not in regular full production updating  mode yet, and obviously
it's under a temporary URL for testing purposes, but it does have a
reasonably complete and fairly recent set of packages for amd64/i386
8.x, 9,x or 10.x.
