ok i've got some initial packages up and being served from this url:


as the name implies this is for 9.0-RELEASE-AMD64 only at this point.

i may rename that in the future - but at this point i'm more than happy
to make this available for NycBUG members who are interested in
experimenting with pkgNG.  if there are specific packages that don't
exist on this mirror let me know and i can add them.

i think the next step is testing out alternate build options of some
packages - this way it may act as a nice compliment to the official
freebsd.org repository.

fwiw - this whole process was much easier than i anticipated (so far
that is ;) so i'm pretty happy.
