Re: HEADS UP: terminfo imported into -current

I've now imported my terminfo implementation into -current and removed
termcap. terminfo provides a backwards compatable termcap interface (minus
the NetBSD extensions).
Everything should still work just as before, with the below exceptions:
* Any 3rd party programs using the termcap API NetBSD extensions
will have to be reworked.
* termcap -> terminfo translation is not provided.
As such $TERMCAP is ignored and tset -s no longer reports it.
If you maintain your own definitions you will now have to manage
them your personal terminfo databases.
This is described in tic(1).
So I deleted my termcap.db and rebuilt all my packages because I
was getting termcap errors from xterm. Is that about what I need to do
to test for this change?
