1:39 PM - Ravenports
The Ravenports folks are looking into supporting MidnightBSD so there'd be an additional source of packages for the OS available.
We've done some work on the firstboot script in Current to support this experimental bootstrap/integration.
This is certainly not final yet, but looking promising. There are a number of packages available via Ravenports that aren't available in mports.
For example: recent firefox releases!
We won't be discontinuing mports, and consider this an additional package manager / repository. However, we will try to make it easy to use on a fresh install and support it as much as we can.
