Well, good news for OS diversity fans - FreeBSD is transitioning, to Git that is :)
FreeBSD Can Now Be Built From Linux/macOS Hosts, Transition To Git Continues
.. - On the Git front, their transitioning from Subversion to Git they
hope to have a beta repository by the end of October.
.. - The FreeBSD Ports collection surpassed 40,000 ports/packages.
.. - As of September it's now possible to build a functioning buildworld
and buildkernel environment from macOS and Linux hosts. This is done due
to some CI tools only supporting Linux/macOS and wanting to use them for
constructing the FreeBSD base system and was sponsored by DARPA.
Apparently even dinosoars can evolve, after all ;)
