I suspected repo.txz might not be needed anymore but wanted to make sure =
first, since ktrace mentionned a file not found error for it.

I guess I was trusting overmuch in "pkg help repo" which still =
references repo.txz.

I suppose man 8 pkg-repo will want an update though, at the very least =
to tell people it's deprecated as of 1.2.x and to look at pkg-repository =
instead.


Thanks for the insight Matthew !
