Well, I'm thinking I'd like to be able to use ports to install a package
of a recent tcpdump snapshot, as code of my own is in there now and I
use it regularly with a project I'm working on. ports support would be
beneficial (no need to mess around with cvs checkouts all the time, use
a known good snapshot to build a package, unless hacking on tcpdump/pcap).
tcpdump/pcap reside in vendor branches which other committers can't touch,
the rules of the road are that re@ have the final say, and specific people
have responsibility for the vendor branches.
ports would seem to be an acceptable halfway house, though, for people who
want to use pcap/tcpdump of a more recent vintage, than has been determined
to be suitable for a FreeBSD release. does it not?
