I like what Peter says, about getting more people to test -current.
However, having 2.9 point to more stable packages 'out of the box' may be
better. It's a relatively easy step to go from a quarterly to current
pkgsrc, and I'd like to be sure people know when they are doing it.
I am building pkgsrc-current bulk builds and sending the reports to
pkgsrc-bulk, so we do at least have reports there.
