>From today's writing:

"Trac server" and "Module's currently in svn" links on http://www.pcbsd.org/content/view/48/30/ are broken.

When modifying pbi-build/modules/*/copy-files, should you include everything in the port's pkg-plist or just bin/ and share/ ? More to the point, what is the difference between overlay-dir and copy-files? e.g. does creating dirs in overlay-dir ensure everything in pkg-plist gets populated? If so, why do we need copy-files?

Should default swap be bigger? I keep running out of swap space when running pbibuild.sh on latest alpha.

Using pbibuild.sh (i386 version for 8.x) fails with "ERROR: 2.1 Build failed of irc/conspire"
If I cd into /pbi-build/pbisandbox/usr/ports/irc/conspire and manually run make, it can't find /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk (even though it exists in the sandbox)--however, if I chroot into the sandbox, it builds fine (note: make fetch worked as conspire tarball exists in sandbox's distfiles/)

/pbicreator/PBC included with 8.x i386 version of PBI Builder is the 64 bit version instead of the 32 bit version
