BSD and Darwin derivatives MidnightBSD 0.4-RELEASE hit FTP servers today and the new version includes a custom package management tool, "mport", that was developed with sqlite3 and libarchive. The packing list and all metadata is stored in SQL and a tool is provided to query the package database directly. This allows scripts and third party tools to easily integrate with the package system.

I'm curious whether you did mean working "with" free software or working "on" free software? I think it's easy to find companies willing to use free/libre software (ie LAMP/etc), but the bigger hurdle seems to be landing an employer willing to sponsor FOSS contributions.


In my case it was "with" Free Software. Seems to be all the place now, but before I was really scared of not being able to find a job that allowed me to work with it.
