[PC-BSD Dev] pkgng repo & system updates question

I'm looking forward to having those work as well :) Any idea on when they will? 1.0.9?

Right now the system updates will be coming down via the "pc-updatemanager" utility, which is apart of pcbsd-utils package in our repo. You'll need to keep that package updated, since it'll do the necessary bits of adjustment to "freebsd-update" to perform system updates to 9.1.1 or 9.2, etc. 

Any idea when Gnome3 is going to hit ports? Would be nice to have it in our repo.

It would appear that you are using the packagesite: options becuase the multiple repo's settings even in pkg 1.0.8 are just not working yet.  Can't wait until they do work.  :)

The big question I have is system updates.  If I were to run with my own package repository until they day I can use both would I still be able to get updates from system manager?  Will it still use freebsd-update?  Or is it going to use pkg to run system upgrades as well?
