FreeBSD Automated Release Bot

Farbot automates building of netinstall/PXE boot FreeBSD releases. It features a simple configuration file based on the concept of “Installations”, “PackageSets”, and “PartitionMaps.”

Farbot currently handles the following

  • Building FreeBSD releases, including grabbing any source needed.
  • Building packages for each release, derived from per installation package sets.
  • Laying out an NFS/TFTP exportable file system structure for all built releases, customized for each installation type.
  • Generation of a customized bootloader with options to install each installation type
