Although we strive to keep the quality of the packages collection high, we just do not have enough human resources to ensure the same level of robustness and security.

The end result of the porting effort is ready-to-install binary packages.Packages are the pre-compiled binaries of some of the most used third party software.Packages can be managed easily with the help of several utilities, also referred to as the pkg* tools: In order to run properly, application X may require that other applications Y and Z be installed.The aim of the package system is to keep track of which software gets installed, so that it may at any time be updated or removed very easily.This way, no unnecessary files are left behind, and users can keep their systems clean.
