NAME

cdist-type__package_pkgng_freebsd - Manage FreeBSD packages with pkg-ng

DESCRIPTION

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

If supplied, use the name and not the object id as the package name.

CAVEATS

This type requires that repository definitions already exist in /etc/pkg/*.conf. Ensure that they exist prior to use of this type with __file.

MESSAGES

install

remove

upgrade

exist
