Effective immediately, ports-current will start tracking OpenBSD-current.
Developers contributing to the ports tree should run -current.
This should allow us to early diagnose and resolve problems so that
we can ship a set of quality packages with the next release.
This does not mean that ports-current will magically stop working
on 2.8, however, ports will now be required to run on OpenBSD-current
and any testing against 2.8 is strictly optional. Ports will also
be allowed to use features that are not available in 2.8.
A full snapshot of all packages is being built for the i386, sparc,
and powerpc architectures and will be available from ftp.openbsd.org.
Note that these packages will require -current and will not run on
The ports-stable branch remains unaffected. It will continue to
track 2.8, and as before only the most critical fixes will be
