    How well does pkgsrc do with security updates? This is one area where quarterly releases scare me compared with more of a rolling build, as many packages will need patching before a quarter is up.

    Note to self: I should start using this everywhere. Need to start testing.

    What's the difference between Nix and pkgsrc ? Does pkgsrc still have an implicit libc dependency ?

      I might not be able to answer that as never used nix but someone on Freenode #pkgsrc or mailing list might know better.
