Michael W Lucas has summarized a recent FreeBSD devsummit regarding ports and packages. In this devsummit, it started with an overview of Debian packages and dependencies. Using qemu BSD user mode for cross-building packages was also in talks. Cross-building has seen improvements, and nightly ARM crossbuild packages are being tested, which may be ready by EuroBSDCon. Other things discussed were PortCI, Jenkins bhyve, as well as a possibility of using certificate transparency via X.509v3 extension.
