The pkg-get Tool is deprecated

December 30th, 2011 by bwalton

We just released an updated version of CSWpkgget that deprecates the pkg-get tool and pulls in pkgutil.  As many sites will have automation built around pkg-get, it is still possible to use the tool but steps will be required to do so.  Going forward, pkgutil is the supported OpenCSW package management tool.  All automation should be converted to use pkgutil.

The full announcement is in the CSW Users list archive.  The announcement includes details on how to continue using pkg-get if required.
