Welcome to poudriere!

poudriere is a tool primarily designed to test package production on FreeBSD. However, most people will find it useful to bulk build ports for FreeBSD.

Its goals are to use modern facilities present in FreeBSD (such as ZFS, jails), to be easy to use and to depend only on base.
