I've just installed a very recent -CURRENT, and now I'm performing a big portupgrade procedure. I get the following message spammed a lot:

pkg: PACKAGESITE in pkg.conf is deprecated. Please create a repository configuration file

Yeah, I noticed that spam along with the spam that is being
spewed to /var/log/messaage, e.g.,

Can you (portmgr) please mute these messages?


This received several responses.

Do you really feel that strongly about it?  Having a record of changes to
the system has always seemed like a feature to me...

this has been done and activated for reason, first for lot of companies, it is important (PCI DSS requirement for example), secondly I receive tons of request to actiavte on by default while you are the first to request it off by default

Adrian Chadd said:

The point is that some people like an audit trail. The audit trail for
some people involves remote logging of syslog messages to a log host.
This would include when packages are installed.

My thought:

Then why can't the messages about installed ports have it's own log file rather than /var/log/messages?

As for this message:

pkg: PACKAGESITE in pkg.conf is deprecated. Please create a repository configuration file

Glen Barber replied:

echo 'SYSLOG: no' >> /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf

And Shane Ambler:

now we can turn it off which I don't think we could before.

Me again:

Where is this documented?

/root # man pkg.conf
No manual entry for pkg.conf
