Looking at the FAQ you linked (https://trueos.github.io/pkgbase-docs/), it seems the above CFT system is less granular than the one currently produced via the in-tree "make packages" (which could be a good thing from a simplicity standpoint). Is there anything else?

What are the plans to get rid of the hellscape known as “mergemaster”? Is there anything exciting and new there either in base or any of the ixSystems projects?
