i stopped noticing gnat fingerprints error. i should start noticing it again.

as for the issues with the repo not being found: did you create the BE before adding the repo?

… did you create the BE before adding the repo?

I believe so:

Honestly, I'm not certain:

Replace `release` in the above URL with your desired branch. Either `release`, `stable`, or `current`.
– if you prefer, specify the `stable` or `current` branch.

i think i preferred my phrasing

or is there a good reason why this should be changed?

Thanks for kicking back! (I'm sometimes quite blunt with my edits. Sorry.)

Grammatically: not either where there are three or more things.

With release already in the url line, there's no need to replace if release is desired.

Thanks. (I probably never used fetch … simply more familiar with wget.) I'll change it.

## Package Sets

does this render sensibly?

To my eye, yes; the monospace + lowercases subtly reinforces the association between the three package sets and the choice of three (desire) mentioned nearer the head of the page.

Very much a personal preference. If you find it jarring let's revert.

https://github.com/freebsd/poudriere/pull/799jail: pkgbase: Add update-packages support – is certainly educational. Thanks.

Looking ahead, might https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=poudriere(8) be more appropriate here?

Ultimately, https://github.com/freebsd/poudriere/pull/799 could be a very good fit with a History section of a FreeBSD wiki.

not until all these fixes aren't released, properly. right now it's only released as poudriere-devel

Ah! I would not have got the -devel context.

Maybe worth adding a more explicit in-page hint to use ports-mgmt/poudriere-devel in lieu of ports-mgmt/poudriere.

(Admittedly, I'm still working through the pages. Sorry if I'm overlooking something.)
