[20060207] pkgmanager - a package manager for pkgsrc
After it has become a fashion that every pkgsrc user writes his/her own pkgsrc update script (because there's no one true way on how to approach the problem on one side, and pkgsrc offers a few tools but not THE solution), there's another tool taking a stab at the tool: Peter Schuller's pkgmanager doesn't try to remove all pkgs first (which is what 'make update' and pkg_chk aparently do), but tries to update the package "in place". See the pkgmanager homepage for more information.
