:What do you mean? pkgsrc-wip has the current BSD installer in the sense
:of HEAD sources from the bsdinstaller repository. It will be imported
:into pkgsrc after the unfreeze, e.g. Dec 27th timeframe.

    I'm not going to make a release branch dependant on pkgsrc-wip.

    It's already bad enough that we have lost the specific package
    versioning that was previously specified.  It is highly unlikely
    that the build will survive an update of the installer package.
    Generally speaking, the change was a bit premature and is a step
    backwards insofar as the release goes.  I am slogging through it,
    but I am not happy with it.
