    Absolutely. We have channel on freenode #desktopbsd if you would like to join. I do have a few ports that need finished for this project. Specifically:

    xdg-user-dirs-gtk (started)
    nautilus-share (started)
    dhcpcd-ui-gtk (ported qt only so far)

    Of course others are welcome.

    I'll setup a github where you can download all the Linux .deb packages I port over to FreeBSD !

    Cool. Sorry to have missed you on IRC. I do have some ports started here for xdg-user-dirs, and so on in my personal github:

    https://github.com/pkgdemon

    You might want to talk to Angelescuo about the deb packages if you are going to go that direction. We do pull in dpkg for certain functions. We don't use it exclusively currently for a pkg manager so I am not sure how that would work exactly. Angelescuo might know more about it.

    Hello,
    I haven't understood.
    You have ported some linux packages to BSD in txz pkg format ?
    Or you have compiled/ported linux apps under BSD and packaged using deb format ?
    We are in #dekstopbsd channel on freenode.
    Thank you.
