Changes in version 2.0

Released on 2017-02-17.

This is the first release of the pkg_comp project as a standalone
package. This new release shares no code with previous versions and is
not compatible with them.

The following are the major differences between pkg_comp 2.0 and all
previous releases, which incidentally are the reasons that triggered
this rewrite:

  • Support for multiple platforms.
  • Use of pbulk to (re)build packages within the sandbox. This results
    in more reliable incremental builds after pkgsrc updates.
  • Support for bootstrap, generating binary kits as part of the builds.
  • Better scriptability to allow running from cron(8) trivially.
