Thanks for the tip on subscribing to the forum. It will let me
subscribe, so I guess I was just looking in the wrong place. This'll
save me some time. :)

Maybe we should move the PBI Request Wiki onto the forum. It would make
it easier for us to mark off items we're working on. It would also let
us prioritize items based on the number of people who chime in.

On the AMP issue, I'm not sure how Postgrs or items like phpmyadmin
would work. Those are tools that generally interact with other packages
as a part of a stack. It doesn't really lend itself to a PBI approach in
my opinion. I think the way PBIs include dependencies also opens a
security issue when dealing with things like Apache, databases, etc.
Anyone else have thoughts on this?

- Jesse

I subscribed by going to http://forums.pcbsd.org/forumdisplay.php?f=61,
clicking Forum tools -> Subscribe to this forum. If that does not work,
let us know as it may be a permission issue.

I'll be updating the Handbook to point to the forum and have been
directing IRC requests there.

> 2. Create one thread in the PBI Request forum for said requests. 

I can do as a daily message on the days that apply. I'm also blogging as
new PBIs show up.

Excellent idea. I see it did not take long for MAME to get attended
to :-)

We had a request on IRC today for Postgres. I know we used to do AMP
stuff  -- are we doing that as Warden inmates these days?
