I should be getting access soon. Thank you for your offer, and if needed
I'll try to remember to email you later.

Thank you. I'll let you know if I need it, but I should be getting another
system soon.

I was not planning to provide official pkgsrc packages for DragonFly. I
was only planning to use it for fixing any build issues and improve
pkgsrc's support for DragonFly. But I see this could be useful.

We will have to discuss if this will be official for your project or not
and I'll need to see if the packages can be also hosted on the build
machine I will be using.

Just to let you know, the pkgsrc bulk builds have an option to create
checksum files for the packages intended to upload and can PGP/GPG sign
the checksums.

Also, I can have PGP/GPG signed packages too.

Please be sure to carbon-copy me on any replies.
