FreeBSD Developer Summit: Package Base

Date: May 16th (Thursday) 13:30-15:00

Overview

FreeBSD in package form is something different groups have been requesting for a long while now. There are currently two implementations (possibly more) in various stages of completeness: the "in-tree" version currently in HEAD, and an out of tree version using Ports. This working group will be focused on discussing the two implementations, looking at potential issues in both, and attempting to make some decisions and progress on which route will achieve proper FreeBSD base packages in a timely fashion.

For further reading about the implementation / run-time usage of the out-of-base version, please review Base Ports/Packages Documentation

Full Disclosure: I (Kris) am the primary architect of the out-of-base version used by iXsystems and FreeNAS, but prior to that development, was working on using the in-tree version within iX as well.
