So, what do you think? Run NetBSD-1.4.1 and upgrade the BIG problems, or
run NetBSD-release and risk a little in exchange for quick & easy bug
while i hadn't gotten to do this yet (and now these machines are probably
going to be decommisioned or run by someone else anyway), i did plan on
doing the -release via anoncvs for these critical, production machines.
the -release tree is exported as a whole for this purpose -- to provide
a bug-fixed version of the latest formal NetBSD release. if you follow
source-changes, you will see that many bug fixes are pulled across and
occasionally features or new drivers.
"you" are exactly the sort of "customer" that NetBSD-release is for,
as far as i can tell.
