Wow, my first posting in this new weblog. My laptop, a new MacBook Pro, spent about 10 days over easter in order to really do a MirPorts bulk build. 1503 binary packages for MirOS #10 have been uploaded to the mirrors. This has also been an occasion to review some largely untouched parts of the tree. Most of the problems seen are related to missing distfiles, changed download URLs, etc. Some packages did not build during th bulk build but when run non-recursively, they worked.

Some bugs in the resulting packages remain: You must manually install the expat package for most of the stuff to work. gtk+ insists on writing to /var/db, which makes it unsuitable for AS_USER builds. firesomething only when works as firefox. Still, this gives you a wide variety of pre-built packages for the new release. Enjoy!
