2 New Forums Dealing with FreeBSD Ports

At this week’s DevSummit prior to EuroBSDCon, we had discussions on how to improve communications between end-users (who use software and discover bugs and usability problems) and ports maintainers (who port software and fix bugs). It was agreed that it isn’t always easy for users to submit their feedback and get a response back. It is equally difficult for ports maintainers to find users willing to test new ports.

In response, we’ve created two new PC-BSD forums:

  • Ports Requests: where users can request ports for software that is not currently ported to FreeBSD
  • Ports Testers: where ports maintainers can put out calls for testers and receive user feedback

Please read the README file in each forum before posting a new thread. If you maintain a FreeBSD port or know any ports maintainers, help us spread the word about these new resources :-)
