-Minix uses pkgsrc as it'​s ​primary package manager, and pkgsrc is generally distributed in source form via a version control system. Most people on non-Minix systems use CVS to checkout the latest copy from the NetBSD project. Since all of the Minix specific changes and patches haven'​t made their way into the NetBSD version of pkgsrc yet, we maintain our version of the pkgsrc tree in own repository on [[http://​git.minix3.org/?​p=pkgsrc.git;​a=summary|git.minix3.org]]. On a semi-regular basis we update our pkgsrc tree by merging in the changes from the NetBSD (upstream) version. Upstream uses CVS and we use git. Luckily, the folks at DragonFlyBSD maintain a git mirror of NetBSD'​s pkgsrc repository ([[http://​gitweb.dragonflybsd.org/​pkgsrcv2.git/​shortlog/​refs/​heads/​master|here]]). To update our repository, we just merge the changes from DragonFlyBSD'​s mirror.+Minix uses pkgsrc as its primary package manager, and pkgsrc is generally distributed in source form via a version control system.
