Hi Allan and Benedict (and JT if you're reading),

Thanks again for the great show!  This is a long email, so feel free to split it up or omit parts.

----------

On episode 230, Jason asked about broken ports resulting from the default configuration of tracking HEAD for the ports tree and the quarterly branch for packages.  I posted about that last year along with a script making it easy to use the quarterly branch for ports:

It's nothing fancy, but it does the job.  I've also included it as part of a GitHub project:

Second, I'm about to start a new project at work where I'll have an influence on the CI/CD/hosting infrastructure, so I'd like to recommend FreeBSD if it fits.  I've managed FreeBSD on my desktop and individual servers for years, but never a cluster.  I'd need to provide an environment as easy and scalable as Docker containers managed by Kubernetes on AWS, but Docker didn't seem to be production ready on FreeBSD the last time I tried it.  Any input or pointers to references?

On a related note, I thought you mentioned that the FreeBSD CI/CD team was looking for help, but I can't find the details in recent episode notes.  Could you please point me to the notes/links so I can see if it's something I could help with when work slows down a bit?
