Hi all,

Apart from my thread in bugs, I have some thoughts/questions on pkgsrc:

1. Is it possible to go FreeBSD way in mirrors naming? I mean
something like "", "",
"", etc. Resembling "cvsup.*"

2. Is it possible to expand mirror status page to cover status of
pkgsrc mirrors? I had to go through many of sites to find
suitable for me, after I realized ua mirror does not have all packages

3. I was unable to find the way to deny ipv6 for package retrieving.
So ftp spitting messages like "no route to host" for every package. I
found this somewhat irritating.

PS. Anyway, just great system! I like it more than FreeBSD's ports. :)
