Darwinports developers are currently working on re-designing the system for usability
and providing a C callable API. We are hoping this will make it easier to write good
applications for managing ports.

I am not sure how much time has been spent on this new idea as many darwinports
developers are also apple employees with their hands full with Panther stuff.

Maybe the kernel mailing list isn't the best place for this post but it seems to be the most relevant list I could find.

I was wondering if there was any consideration for making use of the darwin-ports infrastructure as a possible future option?

I've been following the darwin-ports efforts off and on for the last year or so and although not as mature as the current FreeBSD Ports system it looks as though it will be more future-proof.

Since it works independent of pkg-management it is foreseeable that it could work in hand with dfbsd's goals.

What are your feelings on the matter?
