I do have my own repository with poudriere, it is used as the only
source of packages for a dozen of my headless machines (I switch off
the default FreeBSD repository on them).

That's something new to me about the preference order. How is the
order configured and how does it work? What if there is a newer
package in the less preferred repositories, and an older one in the
more preferred one, how is this situation resolved?

That does not seem a big problem to me, I build a lot of packages anyway.

Could you please elaborate on that? Do you mean there is a problem if
the package versions in two repositories are not in sync?
