Hi Justin:

Thats an awesome initiative from your side. 

If one is working with a daily snapshot version, what is the
recommended way to pull in binary packages eg. editor, debugger,
irc client etc ?

or is it like,
lets say i'm using 20091015 snapshot and since 2.4.1 was
released on 20090930, hence one can use binary packages for 2.4

i'm leaning towards asking if there is something like a
'current' binary pkgsrc build envisaged or one should pull in
the pkgsrc-2009Q3 meta package (FreeBSD ports of Gentoo portage
like) and compile out the stuff one needs.
