pkgsrc upstreaming

Overview

Minix uses pkgsrc as it's primary package manager. The master branch of Minix's pkgsrc.git repository contains a pristine copy of the official pkgsrc repository. The minix-master branch contains a copy of the master branch with the Minix specific changes applied. The goal is to get all of the Minix specific changes into the official upstream pkgsrc repository which is developed and maintained by the NetBSD project. However, there is some work to be done to get the changes in shape for upstream acceptance. This page is used to organize the upstreaming effort.
