as far as i saw, NetBSD pkgsrc cvs mirrors are not reliable,
and their downtime stroke me many times.

pkgsrc-wip cvs seems reliable.

I second on maintaining git mirror of pkgsrc,
but i don't know the amount of work (and traffic) involved.
I'll ponder it; then, if time/resources permit,
i will mirror pkgsrc and pkgsrc-wip here in Ukraine,
at least in cvs (tired of downtime, that is)
