    Is anyone running ezjail on 6.2?

Yes, 6.2-stable GENERIC. At install time I created a separate
partition for, /usr/jails which makes it default to the ezjail-admin
create jail default location.

I've got to set up three similar jails
and i'd like to run them off of one base. I'd like to create a jail flavor,
where one jail has file x while the others do not.

My limited understanding of Flavours...These are like templates to
quick rebuild or create 'like' jail containers. While your maybe
similiar, what x is (and how big) may make them different.

Two problems i'm having
with flavors is one adding packages such as shells

Got me here. Something I need to learn as well.

, and two adding users and
giving them the shells just added?

I would think the adding users could either be done from an ssh
session into a running jail, or using # jexec JID adduser. I'm not
sure how to do the shells, except to say that I know I read
somewhere...where you can setup/change the default shell, then for
each new user added, they would get this profile.

I'd also like it if i could mount my host
system's ports tree in the jail itself, so i wouldn't have to get multiple
copies of the ports tree. The only way i've found thus far of doing this is
via nullfs on the base system and was wondering if there was an easier
method of doing this?

Now this one I know can be done a couple of different ways. First is
in the FAQ. The other is in a post I just made last week for the same
reason. I read man ezjail-admin. Just issue the following

# ezjail-admin update -p.
This will update existing ezjails to have access to the host ports
tree. From within a running jail, when you type # cd /usr/ports, your
will really be going to /basejail/usr/ports. pkg_add -r and make/make
install clean all  work fine.

Ezjail also has a list you can join, if interested...although it is
not very active. Responses are reasonably quick, given the support is
free :)
