I know that the more popular packages deserve priority but is there actually a defined process for reviewing and making packages available for install through the GUI?  If that process exists, is it something that can be published?

We haven't defined that process yet.

A package readiness spreadsheet, like the one that was available for 2.2 (I think), would be really useful.  Maybe even shared with and editable by package developers/maintainers, so they could say where they're up to.

See the first post in this thread, it already has a link to the sheet for 2.3.

Bind package is needed too..

I'm happy to help test bind, if required.
At the moment, I'm holding off upgrading to 2.3 as I use bind for DNS.

can we get LCDproc-dev added to the list of packages that need conversion?

I've spent a few hours looking at all this info, and looking at the code of 2.2.x packages and 2.3 packages and i'm totally lost.

This guy posted instructions on how to manually get it working on 2.3, but we really need a package.

I noticed pfsense has the freebsd ports tree in the git repo, so all these requests for binaries could simply be honoured by allowing people to compile ports on a pfsense box?

Negative. Putting a compiler environment on a firewall is extremely dangerous.

well obviously there is a security risk if its implemented in a bad way, I see worse things on pfsense tho then a compiler.  I was just thinking out loud on how to make this a whole lot more flexible in packages.

I been reading the documentation linked to from the first post and am left confused in regards to specific steps, e.g. if i am making a pkg to use on pfsense, is it ok to build on a FreeBSD box? or is it preferred to use the pre built FreeBSD binary? or is it required to use a special build environment?

Also is there a requirement for a pkg to have GUI integration?

Those are topics for a different thread.

so this topic is nothing to do with making packages for 2.3 as the topic title says?

This thread was specifically for people who were developing packages previously who needed information on converting existing packages for use on pfSense 2.3 in the new pkg and bootstrap framework. Not for general package creation questions.
