I've added a wiki page with a Table for summarizing PBI requests. This will make it easier to determine which PBIs are needed and who is working on them:
I have already added most of the requests in this forum, except for a few that are either already part of FreeNAS core or which don't have a port request yet.
This table will also come in handy as I update the page on how to make a PBI--I want to do a walk-through example of making a PBI module from scratch.
I have 90% completed a sabnzbd / sickbeard / couchpotato / headphones pbi's. I'm not using the ports (there are not recent ones). I'm just using pbi_create, I'll provide the source when I'm done. So basically you can add that I am working on those 4, though I am willing to take help from anyone.
You will submit the missing ports to FreeBSD when you are finished?
I guess I could, all I'm packaging is the dependencies, init script, script that download / unpacks latest version of the respective program(which isn't compiled, it's python). I'd like to minimize my work, but I should have time to do it this summer

What is PyLoad: pyLoad is a fast, lightweight and full featured download manager for many One-Click-Hoster, container formats like DLC, video sites or just plain http/ftp links. It aims for low hardware requirements and platform independence to be runnable on all kind of systems (desktop pc, netbook, NAS, router).

would love to see a calibre PBI plugin. I posted my request in table linked by admin.
It already exists as port (deskutils/calibre) and as PBI (see pbidir.com)
calibre is an ebook manager. main features:
•Syncing to e-book reader devices
•Downloading news from the web and converting it into e-book form
•Comprehensive e-book viewer
•Content server for online access to your book collection
Yes, I would love LMS plugin too

I am just wondering why applications like AjaXplorer or sabnzbd/sickbeard/ect.. need to ported (as a freebsd port)? If theyre written in php or python nothings needs to be compiled and to run them you just need appropriate dependencies. Whats wrong with just packaging up..
1. latest working dependencies
2. install script (which downloads latest version of application)
3. init script
4. freenas gui stuff
just a though as I believe it would save time and hasstle, and for scripting language applications I don't see a reason for a freebsd port when pbi_create makes the same end product without having to compile the binaries. Thanks for the reply.

I just most a VPN server that easy to use
PPTP or IPSec is fine
Good question. I know for PC-BSD (originator of PBIs) a port is necessary as the PBI build server depends upon notification from the underlying port to know when to build the new version (i.e. the underlying port has a higher version number). Not sure what the design will be for the FreeNAS PBI build server.
