Good news, we have news from the pkgbeta.FreeBSD.org server:

pkg bootstrap is being restored. Stay tuned.

The site went down shortly after I wrote my pkgng FreeBSD Handbook post, ironically enough. I was going to post in the newsgroups asking what was up, but now we have news.

UPDATE: We now have a new message.

Currently this site only contains pkg bootstrap files!

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
