I have a fresh, minimal install of FreeBSD 8.2 i386 and it looks like the applications I would like to run are in stable as opposed to release (libreoffice, firefox 4). 1. If I set PACKAGESITE to ****/packages-8-stable/Latest/ do I also need an 8-stable base system? 2. Browsing the forums I found mention of 'bxpkg' in ports. Is it also in the binary package respositories - I just found the bxpkg package in the ftp site 3. Is stable updated daily or is it more like OpenBSD current with periodic updates - I want to avoid getting caught between python updates.
