Well no (I use apt-get), but I think I can assume that (I probably can't
afford having many users in my initial versions anyway).

I'm lost here. Do you refer to our ports based on kernel of FreeBSD and kernel
of NetBSD, or the real FreeBSD and NetBSD systems?

Glibc-based ones in which I work.

Nice to hear that (although it should be noted that using CDBS is not
the point of my package).

I'm not sure for all, but at least yours is. Thank you.
