Default ports tree with pbi's?
basically, same structure as the ports tree in freebsd, but instead of the makefiles, the files simply has a link to the page/file of the pbi.

I thought the package list on the website was pretty good.
Is there any need for something this elaborate? Besides, the whole point of having PBI's is that there's to be as little typing/configuration as possible

I don't know, but if someone can create a list like this, then it'll most likely be included in a GUI applet maybe like Windows Update.
You have a list of all avilable pakages and updates in a list as soon as you run "PC-BSD Update". But it'll most likely be for v1.0 and beyond.

well, what I mean is that you have a directory on your hdd that lists all apps available ...

the fbsd ports tree has 4 files, the makefile and other stuff, the pcbsd could have 1 single file/script ...

the file/script would have 2 things in it.
1. version/date of the software
2. link to the PBI (via wget?) or a way to get it.

basically, the index site of PBIs is on your hdd.

EDIT: maybe have a separate program/system that would be like the sourceforge database. (so that apps can have multiple categories)
