Could not agree more. Please forget that idea. I just hate having to install libfoo, libfoo-dev, libfoo-dbg, libfoo-doc, libfoo-whatever each time I need to develop on Linux. Please do not transform FreeBSD as a Linux distribution :) I love the way FreeBSD and some very sparse Linux distributions provide the packages exactly how it would be installed by hand (= vanilla). FreeBSD offers some options and very few changes for better integration but packages are provided vanilla. You want a package? You install /packagename/ nothing more, nothing less. I really would like to see simple vanilla packages for the next 10 years. The FreeBSD ports is already extremely complicated, do not make it even harder :( Regards, -- Demelier David _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-ports To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-ports-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
