[patch] serving poudriere packages privately

This change originally started as a drive by patch on github (https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-doc/pull/66). Since then I decided to dive deeper into the docs and internalize the FDP a bit more and taking this as an opportunity to also improve my technical writing (as oppose to my informal technical writing :D).

Please let me know if there are any other improvements I should make. I've attached the diff (with a .txt extension as recommended in the FDP).

Thank you!

[patch] serving poudriere packages privately

Thanks for coming back to it. That looks good to me besides the (very minor) quibble inline below, that's arguably a matter of taste.

I'd say "prefix" instead of protocol here, since it's not a network protocol.

Hey PauAmma,

Thanks for that. I've always learned "file://" as being a protocol. You are right in that it's not a network protocol, but it is still a protocol on that it's the way in which you will be communicating. file:// could be communicating over the network (if you have a mounted network drive - but that's more of an OS abstraction). We could also call it a URI scheme or scheme for short if more comfortable. Here are some references of people calling it protocol as well on both UNIX and Windows worlds (where in Windows it's coming directly from Microsoft):

Fair enough. Could you remove the extra text (email headers etc.) from your patch and reupload, checking the "this is a patch" checkbox when you do?
