0.147 build still has dependencies on Sun provided 0.134 packages that
are only available in binary form, so getting all the dependencies would
be important to have a working repo.
The pkg mirror script I found and used did do this, I think. At least
I asked for the b134 stuff from pkg.opensolaris.org, and many packages
came over that were only 133. It turned out that they were the latest.
I'm not sure if they were grabbed because of a dependency or just
because they were the latest of that package.
The feature I'm waiting for is the ability to prune older builds from
a repository to thin it out as time goes by and newer builds are
added. I've been told there are ideas in this area, but I don't think
the pkg5 team has any concrete plans.
