Because we build the packages so you don't have to. Building a package takes time, and time is money. Therefore, you don't have the time to keep an eye on the mailinglists and manually build and distribute updates.
Between May and September 2013 we have built updated packages for 54 ports, resulting in 181 packages. Assuming that each roughly 5 minutes to build, we have saved you almost a 1000 minutes of building packages. And this doesn't even include testing and distributing them...
...and we even build updates for the base system conveniently packaged as binpatches for you.
We will only contact you via signed e-mails and our packages are also signed. This way you can verify and be sure that what's provided on this site is secured and trusted.
Currently we will notify you on the provided e-mail address, but in the future we may extend this service to other communication channels too.
Note, that when you have subscribed you can also enable Long Term Support (LTS), please read on for more information.
By subscribing to our Long Term Support service you will enjoy OpenBSD packages built from security and stability backports. Just like subscribers to our free plan we will notify you by e-mail when a new pacakge has been tested and released.
When you sign up for LTS you are eligible for professional support depending on your plan. For more details please refer to the table on the right side of this page.
