FreeBSD pkgsrc news

Good news! FreeBSD is outsourcing pkgsrc to NetBSD.

Partner-sourcing the ports tree is a large project and will take some time to complete. First, to our loyal customers. You will see no noticeable change in our product. We are still committed to providing high quality third party applications to meet your computing needs. You should feel no apprehension in the continued use of FreeBSD within your own organization. In fact, we feel this move will lead to a FreeBSD 7 which will finally be the improvement over FreeBSD 4 that you have been looking for.

I'm sure the shareholders at FreeBSD can look forward to a better FQ3 now.
