Original OSNews Interviews A few days ago we featured an interview with one of Fink's project leaders regarding their package management solution which breeds more Unix software to MacOSX. Today, we host an interview with Jordan Hubbard regarding the DarwinPorts, speaking for the DarwinPorts Team which a similar effort to bring more Unix software on Mac OS X. Jordan is currently working at Apple and OpenDarwin (while many will know Jordan as the FreeBSD co-founder).

These are not so much of a question IMHO.

> Is DarwinPorts funded by Apple?

The guys who work on it are mostly Apple engineers from their Unix department, AFAIK.

> Is this based on libh?

Does it really matter, as long it works?

>Does this have the potential to become FreeBSD's next-generation ports system?

Jordan is not part of the FreeBSD project anymore, so such a decision are solely of FreeBSD's.
