I've got a question, sort of a request, maybe. Does anybody else think that
a message in UPDATING (or failing that, a message to current-users with an
obvious enough subject) would be useful every time the current version (ie.
1.5X, 1.5Y) is incremented? I'd personally find it handy so that I'd know
when a full world build is an absolute must, or whether I can live with just
building a kernel, since no critical interfaces have been changed...
I usually build world anyway, but sometimes will just do a new kernel, and
since I update /usr/src on a regular basis sometimes I've updated my kernel
and not noticed that the version went up until I rebooted.
Just a thought.
