Issue #2730 has been updated by ftigeot.

The package system is set up to only produce packages for release branches of DragonFly, the release branches having an even subversion number.

DragonFly 4.1 is the new development version and will in time become DragonFly 4.2.

When a new DragonFly release is being made, the new development branch is not too different from the release branch and is typically able to use its packages for a while without any change (except for the configuration adjustment).

Thus, creating packages for the new development branch (the future N+1 release) is not a priority.

Bug #2730: missing ABI 4.2 package versions in repos

* Author: masu
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 

I have installed dfly 4.0.0RC (x86_64), enabled pkg mirror Schlundtech in df-latest.conf and tried to do a "pkg update" resulting in an error on missing files (meta.txz and digests.txz).

This is due to a wrong definition of ${ABI} in df-latest.conf which is set to 'dragonfly:4.2:x86:64'.
This directory does not exists on the pkg mirrors the latest is 'dragonfly:4.0:x86:64'.

Do I miss a step for an initial pkg repo fetch?

This issue remains after upgrading the machine to CURRENT.

Is it ok to set ${ABI} to 'dragonfly:4.0:x86:64' in pkg.conf in the meantime or will this be corrected shortly?
