>BAPT: Since we switched to poudriere we are able to provide updates of binary packages almost everyday for the stable and head branches of the ports tree.

>While working on that we have leverage all FreeBSD features:

- Jails: all build are done inside a jail with-out network access

- ZFS: to fast populate the jails and ensurewe are always building in a clean room

- tmpfs(5)17: for fast I/O

- smp(4)18: yes we can use more than 24cores :)

> we do not yet have FLAVORs nor subpackages

We do have flavors now :) Would be great to get subpackages too

very cool article! wondering is there any comprehensive comparison of Linux/Freebsd?

The best I know, a bit lengthy though: https://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/rants/bsd4linux/01

Should have a (2017) tag on it :-)

Added. Thanks!
