I love Pkgng

Few days ago reinstall my workstation. New setup I done with
USB stick with 9.1-RC1.
 
But I'm not about system setup, just only about Pkgng.
 
Unlike pkg_add, it calculate dependency and fetch all required
first, and install all things very-very fast.
 
Fantastic tool! Many thanks to guys who work on it. 

One note:
Since I'm not found how to get list of packages
(for next easy install), I do my own.

`pkg query` can do conditional search, so to get such list I do: 


 # pkg query -e "%#r==0" "%o"
 print/cups
 www/firefox
 x11/gnome2
 x11/gnome2-fifth-toe
 editors/gnome2-office
 x11/gnome2-power-tools
 graphics/gqview-devel
 comms/kermit
 [cut]

next time we able setup new workstation and do just:
`pkg install cups firefox gnome2 gnome2-fifth-toe \
 gnome2-office gnome2-power-tools gqview-devel kermit ...`
 
and after 10 min we have shinny new workstation :)
