Move existing project definitions from projects/gsoc_2011/ to
The goal for this reorganization is to remove any knowledge of the projects
classification from the file hierarchy: the classification goes into tags,
and projects indexes automatically list projects based on such tags.
Also, the current gsoc_2011 name was wrong anyway, because GSoC 2011 has
already concluded and projects would have had to move to a gsoc_2012 directory
Lastly, yes, "projects/project/*" is slightly redundant. But I want to keep
the project lists from the projects "database" clearly separated.
This is as proposed in www@.
title="Support pkgsrc cross-bootstrapping"
pkgsrc duplicates NetBSD efforts in maintaining X.org packages.
pkgsrc X11, being able to cross-build, could replace base X11 distribution.
The latter decoupling should simplify maintainance of software;
updating X11 and associated software becomes easier because of
pkgsrc's shorter release cycle and more volatility.
Cross-buildable and cross-installable pkgsrc tools could also
simplify maintainance of slower systems by utilising power of
The goal of this project is to make it possible to bootstrap
pkgsrc using available cross-build tools (e.g. NetBSD's).
This project requires good understanding of cross-development,
some knowledge of NetBSD build process or ability to create cross-development toolchain,
and familiarity with pkgsrc bootstrapping.
